    My girlfriend is up for the discounted upgrade and wants to give it to me. What is the best way to go about it? AT&T, Apple Store, Apple online store?

    If I buy it online and they send it on the 19th, does it have to be activated under her name, or can I just activate it myself? If it has to be under her name initially, I should be able to switch it to mine whenever I want right?

    Thank You for the time in answering.

    I called AT&T today and asked this same question. I was told that all I need to do is take the SIM out of my 3G and put it in the 3G S and it should work with no problems. I ordered the phone using another # on my acct that was eligible for the $199 pricing (for 16GB) and purchased online via the Apple Store and had it shipped to my house so I don't have to deal with customer service and such. I figured it might be a PIA to pick it up at my local Apple Store or AT&T since I'm not using my own #.

    I was planning on doing the same, but I have the 1st gen iPhone. I think it's a 3g card however. Regardless if I have to go to AT&T for a new sim, that shouldn't be too much of a hassle. Thanks
