The Apple Store online ordering process asks for the carrier desired and checks upgrade eligibility and takes your credit card payment. I specified which store I wanted to pick it up from. So when I go into the Apple Store after getting my "Available for In Store Pick up e mail" and provide the salesperson with my web order number e mail printout and photo ID, do they just give you the waiting unopened box or do they open the new iPhone box, activate the phone and get the pristine new iPhone all smudged with fingerprints? I want to just bring it home unopened and apply glass screen protector first. Does Apple charge our credit cards when the phone is available for pickup or when it is actually in our hands and they have us sign off on their little iPhone cash registers?
