    since this whole activate in store isnt going to work from what ive read, is apple going to go back to the old good way of activating phones?

    What? One less opportunity to screw us? No, the AT&T I know, has control issues, so they'll continue to conduct business as usual, w/o any consideration that over 6 million iPhone owners are trying to download from iTunes and restore their contacts, music, photos and videos AT THE SAME TIME!:mad:

    I would think that since a lot of customers have been leaving the store without having the phone unwrapped, as long as you sign the contract they have no real reason to require the unbricking in store. I'm sure you can request to unbrick/activate it at home as long as you first sign the contract.

    That's what they did with me. After waiting 4 hours (which was kinda fun), we finally got called in the store and signed up for our contract, swiped credit card, and here's your iPhone. I am glad they didn't have to open it up there, but know since iTunes is down, I am still waiting.
