    Going to the Apple Store tomorrow. Have an iPhone reserved on the iPhone upgrade program but made a last minute decision to pay full price and buy it outright. Do I need to activate the phone on a line in the store, or can I just pay for the phone and go? Not a big deal either way, just wondering.

    Don't have to open the phone or activate if you paid full price

    Pickup and go.

    The carrier stores will keep you hostage if you want to buy outright.

    Right on. I walked in almost two hours before my appointment and five minutes later was out the door with my new silver 128gb iPhone 7 Plus and extra lightning headphones and adapter. Nice and easy. Think I'm just going to pay full retail every year and sell my old one. A lot less hassle.

    Congrats on the phone. I'm curious how the iUP program works what model # did they hand over to you for the Plus, A1661 or A1784? Should be on the back of the phone very tiny print.
