    Hey all,

    I am looking at purchasing myself an iPhone 7+ off of the apple website. Is there anyway to get around having to put in our AT&T account info (last 4 of social and what) when purchasing the full priced iPhone?

    Unfortunately at this point no.

    You can purchase the phone outright without any ties to AT&T by paying full price. But you won't be able to purchase one online without att knowing it unless you cheat on em' & you opened an account with one of their competitors.

    It's a way for apple and the carriers to manage inventory now; newly released and all.

    Those who are international or with other carriers (that can still use att:T-Mobile:sprint:Verizon banded phones, just pop and switch sim) can't order online and are held to just trying their luck in stores & the availability is more limited.

    always happy to help.

    AT&T also requires the billing and shipping address to be same, I don't know if that'll pose any problems...I know they've taken a bit of a hit with fraud and that may be why.
