Going to a website and entering an email address is to much hassle? Sheesh.Thanks everyone.
I restored the phone and then tried to activate. Apparently, for 2G iphones, it removes the FAN discount from your AT&T account. It gave me the option to continue, but I declined. I like my discount too much and it is a hassle to have it added again.
I'm guessing the OP doesn't work for the company he's getting the FAN discount from anymore so removing it would result in him losing it permanently...Going to a website and entering an email address is to much hassle? Sheesh.
