    Hello all:
    I had my friend order a 32GB 3GS for me, since I am still under contract with AT&T with my 16GB 3G. He is giving me the new phone in exchange for my old 3G and cash.

    When I receive the 3GS on Friday, how do I ensure that there will be no problems activating the 3GS which was bought on his AT&T account on *my* account? What exact steps should I take to ensure I can activate the 3GS rightaway on my account?

    BTW - it was ordered through Apple.com with AT&T as the carrier.

    Thanks! :)

    I have a similar question because I bought mine on eBay so it is a similar situation to the OP's.

    Put in your current SIM card into the 3GS, and activate through iTunes.

    Same with you Shaan
