    I don't really know how to do this so I'm just asking for some help

    . I'm planning on buying a 16GB no commitment price for $599. Here's my questions.

    Do I just ask them to sell for me off contract?

    Also I heard about the free Zagg for the attenae area, how do I get into that?

    Last one is will they get it passed the activation screen or will I have to use a ATT sim? If I do need a ATT sim then can I use my friends and not charge him anything?

    Thanks

    I don't really know how to do this either, but i'm thinking if you ask them all of these questions, they'll answer, but i'll take a crack at it.

    1. I guess.

    2. Why, are you going to be on T-Mobile?

    I think it's for everyone for free, but I bet they'll be suspecious.

    3. They'll probably handle that for you. I'm sure they won't let you leave the store with a phone you can't use.

    - Would probably be the best idea. How else would you tell them what you want. =p


    Also I heard about the free Zagg for the attenae area, how do I get into that?

    - Think its with the purchase of an iPhone 4, or for RewardZone members.


    Last one is will they get it passed the activation screen or will I have to use a ATT sim? If I do need a ATT sim then can I use my friends and not charge him anything?

    - Think that iPhone 4's come with the micro SIM already in it (Mine did), so they would either do it in store for you, or let you do it like they did to me at the Apple store (I had my MacBook on me for obvious reasons). But back on track with the activation, logically, i would say yes since its all the same inventory, which would mean that they'll do it in-store, but don't quote me on that. But if they don't, your friend will need to have an AT&T micro SIM to be able to activate the iPhone, and as long as you just use it for activation purposes, and nothing else, they shouldn't charge anything.

    Go to apple and get it for the no commitment price. No questions asked there.

    Apply for the free bumper with the app

    You can activate it with any sim card as long as it is on ATT. It can be also activated by a phonebook sim.

    The nearest Apple store is about 3 hours away so yea...

    I was planning to see what other cases their offering

    Can it be activated with the default micro sim that it comes with?

    I don't think it comes with a sim, if it's not with AT&T.

    if you live in the US all the phones are locked to AT&T so you will have to JB and get the unlock, also time is of the essence, if you wait too long 4.1 will be released and you might not get another exploit(at least one that allows unlocks), the members of the dev team seem to have a "this is it so jump on the band wagon with the getting is good" if you cant save the SHSHs for 4.0.1 it might be a while.

    I know about that but is there any other way of passing the activation screen to jailbreak and unlock.
