    I think it's $36.00 to activate a phone. Or just hacktivate with blackra1n RC3

    Thats a one time fee when you buy a new iphone.
    They dont charge you $36 each time you restore or update your iphone and activate it thru itunes.
    Also he doesnt care about hactivating or officially activating it. He wants to walk out of the Apple store with his faulty iphone replaced and the genious is giving him hard time about having it activated right then and there with an AT&T simcard.
