    You would activate it at the Apple Store via iTunes and if you are porting a number it may take longer, but at not time will you leave the Apple Store without activating it with AT&T. Your friends SIM card will do nothing for your situation....:(:(:(

    There is a way to active your iPhone 3GS without going to an AT&T or Apple store and then unlocking it to be used with T-Mobile. I am saying it because a co-worker has just done that. I can ask him tomorrow if you want me to.

    If you buy at the Apple Store, you won't be leaving without activating the phone on a two year AT&T contract.

    If you're planning on using it on T-Mobile, get ready to pay for the first month's service with AT&T plus the ETF.

    You can have an AT&T customer get it at the no commitment price of $599/699.
