    everything i've read says that you'll be completely set up in the store.

    you will be able to make phone calls from the iPhone 3G when you leave the store, but you may still receive incoming calls on your old cellphone for 6-8 hours if you are porting your number. i found this out this morning at an apple retail store.

    Currently, with the information available, it is believed that the devices must be 'unbricked' in-store, attached to a contract,
    and then you finish registering the device, through iTunes 7.7, when you get home.

    Whether you can make calls, before finishing the registration process, is doubtful.

    It probably depends on luck of the draw. I got mine on Christmas day and activated it then. I ported my number from Verizon and I was making/receiving calls within 5 minutes of activation. I was quite amazed at the speed and the beauty of the automation.
