    My girlfriend purchased the iPhone 5 with her discount and I will use it. I chatted with an AT&T rep online. He said I will need to call them and tell them the IMEI and ICCID, before I activate the phone.

    I can find the IMEI on the box, but where I can find the ICCID? He said there will be a card contains the ICCID in the box. I don't remember I have that card when I purchased my iPhone 4 from AT&T.

    Can anyone provide me with any help?

    The ICCID is printed on the sim card. If the sim card is in the phone, go to settings>general>about and the number should be listed there also.

    I know that. But in that way I need to boot the device. How can I boot the device and go to General without activate the phone?

    You can use a paperclip to eject the SIM card and read it right off of the card.
    At least you could with a SIM and a micro-SIM.
    I haven't seen the nano-SIM yet.

    It is also on the box:

    Thank you Kevin! I cannot find my iphone 4 box so I checked my iPhone 4S box, which is factory unlocked, there is only the IMEI on it. Hopefully the ICCID will be on the iPhone 5 box.

    Thanks a lot!
