    Hey sorry guys, i'm sure plenty of you will say, "Use the search function!" or something but im kinda in a hurry and just wanted to get my question posted. Also, this is my first thread on macrumors.

    When you go to an Apple store and they activate your phone, is that the same as going to the actual AT&T store and activating it and renewing your 2-year agreement? Or would i have to get the phone from the Apple store, then go to the AT&T store and then set up my new 2-year agreement? I plan on getting the new phone the day it comes out and i just don't want anything getting in the way of that. My current phone has dead pixels going halfway across the screen so i cant wait to finally pick up a new one!

    Thanks,
    Jason

    You can set up your iPhone in an Apple store without having to go to AT&T. Best to order one online for instore pickup.

    Yes if you order online you will get it delivered on launch day.

    thanks for the help!

    Is there really much difference between in store pickup and delivered to your home? It seems like it would be much less hassle to just get it delivered to your home as long as it definitely arrives on the 24th. Im just a little worried about actually being able to pick mine up in store. I have class from 10-12 Tuesday and Thursday mornings and i was going to pick it up after class but im not sure if that would work or if stores would be too packed. And i dont know if stores open early enough for me to go before class. Maybe im just too worried about picking it up on the actual day of the release :rolleyes: haha

    Thats because you used too many words. Try something more simple.

    Yes, pre-orders are supposed to be delivered on the 24th. Of course there's no controlling mother nature and human stupidity so sometimes crap happens.

    Yes, i realized i used a lot of words, and that was sort of my point because, really, how else would i word it and have it still be meaningful? haha.

    Anyway, thanks for your help geckotek. I checked out your article too that you have in your sig. That also helped a lot.
