    I just got an iPhone 3G after a 3 hour wait in line.

    The kiosk I was at had a broken credit card/signature box. Fortunately I was going to pay with cash. I paid my 199 plus tax and they hurried me out the door telling me to activate it at home.

    Walking to the car I realized I had never agreed to or signed a new contract! :confused: I was already an AT&T customer but my contract ran out two months ago and I was waiting for the iPhone to renew.

    I'm sure the computer says I'm under a new contract, but am I really? And what should I do with the phone, try to sell it before I activate it?

    Just unlock it and use it with someone who doesn't force you to get a 70 dollar plan. Centennial comes to mind.

    activation requires a contract I bet.

    still a brick anyway

    Doesn't matter. I still can't activate it.

    I have no phone at all at the moment. The guy killed my old sim card and turned on the new one in the iPhone. I just logged into my AT&T account and it says my mobile is suspended in red font at the top of every page.

    Okay, well you obviously go back to store and get it fixed.

    The dude dogged you! Should have been able to use the old SIM card in your previous phone, which is what they did with mine...:(
