    Hi

    just curious if anywhere (Apple Stores/o2/CPW) there has been iPhone activation in store apart from just signing the contract in store. Meaning plugging the iPhone into a computer and loading iTunes up etc etc.

    thanks

    Yes. Apple Store, Trafford.

    Yesterday I bagged a white iPhone 3G.
    I was handed the box to open myself (thought that was a nice touch) -

    ... and then the Apple rep plugged it into a store iMac, and activated the phone.

    It seemed an error message displayed for a second, and then quickly rectified itself to say the phone was activated successfully.
    The rep didn't flinch, so, I gathered, it must be normal.

    The phone is functioning perfectly! :cool:

    First-time iPhone owner here, and I'm one happy happy customer.

    When plugged into my iMac & itunes, I had signal from O2 on both EDGE and 3G (full 5 bars), and it started syncing my content! :cool:

    No, not at first, but If you do get one, I suggest it.

    The iPhone 3G comes with a earlier firmware (5A345), rather than the officially released GM version (5A347).

    The firmware when vanilla from the store, was buggy.
    Restoring helped.

    I was not forced to restore, I chose to, to improve performance :).

    Sitting here after the restore, some keyboard and lagging issues are still there, but it's much more responsive.
