    i just got this brand new iphone

    i was just wonder is there any way to activate the iphone without itunes/at&t?

    i already have an at&t sims card, so all i need is to activate the phone, and i dont want their data plan.

    oh i forgot if i jailbreak the iphone would that automatically activate my iphone ?

    If you don't want the data plan, you will have to jailbreak it, and turn off the data, otherwise, you'll get a hefty bill.

    If I buy online from AT&T and they ship the phone to my house, will it be activated by them or will I need to activate it?
    What happens if I dont activate it ??

    I think you have to activate it because you're paying for it anyways, since when you buy the phone you start paying for the plan (Included in the bill).
