Reserve and Pick-up is ONLY for carrier upgrade? No purchase outright?

    I placed an order with Reserve and Pick-up (https://reserve.cdn-apple.com/US/en...e.com/shop/buy-iphone/iphone6&channel=1&iPP=Y) and received an email confirmation to pick-up on 09/25.

    However, the email stated:

    What you'll need
    Your carrier information.

    If you currently have a wireless account, be sure to bring along your password and any other relevant account information.

    Your personal information.
    You will be asked to provide a current, personal US credit card, your Social Security number and date of birth for a credit check.

    Two forms of identification.

    You’ll need valid primary and secondary IDs, and the first and last names on both must match.
    View acceptable forms of ID

    Your current mobile phone.

    If you’re upgrading from another iPhone, remember to back up your data to your computer or iCloud. You’ll also want to take note of your Apple ID. We can even give you credit for your old iPhone to use toward the purchase of a new one.

    Is the Reserve and Pick-up only for upgrade? No purchasing the phone outright?

    You can purchase it outright. They're just telling you to bring your carrier info so you can get the phone set up in store.

    It appears that apple will only do the plan for those on carriers they have designated, which at this point is AT&T, VZW, T-MO, and Sprint.

    You do not seem to have to have an available upgrade or anything, but you do appear to need to have an account with one of those 4 to participate in their plan.

    Right...to do the apple upgrade plan you need to activate it in store. If you just purchase the phone in full you don't need to.
