    My parents both have iPhone 4s on my AT&T account, and they want to upgrade to the 6. I know what they want, so I was going to swing by the Apple Store on my way home from work tomorrow, there's no need for them to be there with me. However, I don't want their old phones becoming deactivated until I get a chance to give the phones to them.

    When I bought my 6 online, my old phone/SIM card was active until I turned on the 6 for the first time and went through the activation process. Is the same true for phones bought at the Apple Store? I'm worried if I buy the phones tomorrow, I won't be able to get them to my parents until sometime later this weekend and they'll be without working phones until then. Thanks.

    You shouldn't have any problem with that. Just explain what you are doing and why you want to activate them later. That sort of thing is done all the time. :apple:
