    I'm getting ready to walk out my door right now and I only have Cash. Me and a buddy are going and we are picking up two phones, but we both have cash and we don't have time to go by and deposit the money in our accounts. What can we do !?!?!?!?!?

    Not get an iPhone.


    You need a credit/debit card.

    Well that sucks. I paid for the first one with Cash.

    Shoot, that should have been a little more promoted. I've been following the stuff so so, but this is the first that I've heard on NO Cash. How can you not take Cash ?!?!

    It's said that on the Apple/AT&T site for the passed 2 weeks...

    And months ago it was announced that they couldn't take cash, and i guess they are sticking to that.

    A family member of mine who is also getting an iPhone is paying with cash at the AT&T store. I called to confirm they would accept it yesterday--they will. Apple stores will not, however.

    surely they can take the £99 for the phone, then the card on contract?

    Well, does the ATT store have Gift Cards, where I can just buy a card and then get it that way?

    If not they will all be sold out by the time my bank opens!!!

    Really AT&T stores everywhere are acepting cash for purchase of the iPhone. It was never mentioned that AT&T would not accept it, only that apple would not. I checked 3 different AT&T stores yesterday and they all said yes to cash. Plus they have in store gc's so no worries. Just make sure you are not going to a store in cheapside so you don't get mugged.
