I expect to pick up my preorder at the AT&T store on friday. I am curious if they will be just handing me the box or if we will wait there for activation? I am not sure if they have been specific about that this year. Of course last year was such a disaster with in store activation across the country that by the time it got to Hawaii they were just handing those of us doing upgrades a phone to take home. Only new accounts were stuck there setting things up. Thankfully this year the world will not be upgrading iTunes, the iPhone OS, AND activating new phones all at the same moment so maybe it would actually work to activate in the store. Being in Hawaii (and the last place to get phones) I get the luxury of watching this forum for problems long before I have to set up my own phone.
