    Okay so basically what happened was that my mom ordered an iphone just for me, but she made a mistake of changing the phone number of the phone from mine to hers. So now on the shipping confirmation it says- With the following plan: her number. How would I go about changing this to my number now?
    Thank you.:)

    Activate it under your number with your SIM card. Easy as pie. The SIM dictates whos number is on the device, as long as you use a SIM with your number you are ok.

    Just go to an AT&T store if you have issues. They can fix it. Though you may want to wait a day or so...

    Right. You need a SIM with your number tied to it to activate it under your number.

    Correct. Call AT&T and they will swap it. Your mom didn't mess up. Unless your line was also eligible, she most likely had to use her upgrade to get you the phone.

    We talk about this in the upgrade guide.

    You could also just take your current SIM and cut it to micro-SIM size with the micro-SIM delivered with the iPhone as a template. You can then go get a few new SIMs at AT&T once everything dies down. They might charge you $6 or so, but I'd gladly pay a few bucks to avoid waiting on the phone for an hour.
