    Is it true that you can't buy an iPhone 3G without them opening it at the store?
    Because I just got an iPhone, I was expecting them to open it but they never did, they just told me to activate it at home using iTunes
    I'm really confused

    I got iPhone 3G for those who wanted to know
    If you don't want to know, then too bad, you already know

    But it's weird, everyones telling me that you can't and it's impossible.
    I just thought the guy there was doing a mistake not opening it lol

    Lol no. At first, before the release Apple and AT&T said no you must activate in store. Then on opening day Apple's activation servers (iTunes) crashed so they sent people home to wait until it was fixed, then activate it through their home computer.

    there is absolutely no reason why you have to activate it in the store. on iday since the severs were down i took mine home in the box and did it all on itunes. att doesnt do anything special

    You still cannot leave the store with it until you sign your life away to AT&T for 2 years.

    Sign your life away? It's just a phone bill.

    So wait, let me get this right. You CAN buy an iPhone 3G from an Apple store, take it to your house, without signing to ATT?
