I hate giving out SSN. But for obvious reasons you cant get iphone without giving out one and they need to do credit check etc. So, Will you give out to ONE company or two companies? If you buy at apple.com or at an apple store, you are giving your SSN to two companies. On the other hand if you are buying at an ATT kiosk or store, you are giving out to only one company. Is that better? Any thoughts? Give me one good reason why I should go either route? Are phones better (I mean newer manufacturing stock..), in apple store? Or, are they all the same in terms of quality and reliability?
