    US resident.

    Besides $200 (plus tax) what else do I need to bring? AT&T wireless account info? Social security number?

    I'd assume its the same as ya'll that preordered in stores.

    A valid, government-issued photo ID, Your Social Security number, A debit or credit card. At least at the Apple Store, probably the same at AT&T.

    There was a thread saying that AT&T store takes only REAL credit cards, not accepting debit cards or cash at all so be careful.

    does anyone know if there's an age limit? i'm 16. i'm coming with my 21 yo brother, but he reserved his, so he won't be in line with me.

    Nope. At least here in Ohio. I used my Visa logo bank card with no problem.

    Make sure you bring your first born child. If you don't have one, well... -shiver-

    18. Can't start a new contract at 16. Can't agree to anything at 16 (legally). Sorry.

    Unless you are getting on a family plan with him, I dont see you getting one. You have to be 18 to sign a contract.

    I don't pay the bill for the phone, the account is under my Dad's name. But, I know his social security number. Will there be a problem?

    Apple stores now take gift cards for buying an iPhone. See the bottom of: http://www.apple.com/legal/sales_policies/retail_us.html

    You do have to meet any other requirements (like being over 18), though.

    well lets say I'm already on a family plan and I'm just getting a iphone 4 because i obviously had my iphone 3g for 2 years =)

    What would I need besides moola if I want to pick a new phone up anywhere (AT&T, apple, best buy, walmart, radioshack, or w/e)?

    That has to do with pre-orders, not final purchase.

    That’s only if you pre-ordered.

    call the store you want to go to, ask them he question in detail, and take the person who told you's name down. then raise hell if they dont let you buy it:) nah, but really . just get your info straight and I hope you have a license, that will make it MUCH easier.
