Hey, new user here with a few questions I'm sure someone here can clarify for me. My friends dad will be buying me an iPhone and I will be paying him back as I don't have a credit card, we will be at an apple store, so I can have him purchase it then activate it for me right? Second, If I activate the phone right now is there an activation fee? Do I have to pay for anything else on top of the phone when I buy it like a sim card? I'm going to be putting it onto a family plan, so its just the line free then the iphone data plan right? Also, should I wait until the end of the month to use the iphone plan? If I don't I'm not sure how my sms will be charged as i have 400 and iphone plan is only 200. If I use a new iphone sim card or whatever, do I keep my old number? Thanks for anything you guys can give me! Come Friday I hope to be an avid iPhone owner, Sean. Also, If I activate it under a new plan do I sign up for a full two year contract? Can I avoid a new two year contract as my current one on my family plan ends in like two months, so not signing up for a new plan would be great.
