WOW, Apple has a list of how to buy an iPhone 3G, be good or NO iPHONE FOR YOU!
The Apple Retail Store is the perfect place to get your iPhone 3G. When you arrive, a Concierge in an orange shirt will direct you to the iPhone bay where you can take advantage of our free Personal Setup. A Specialist will help you choose an iPhone 3G, review coverage maps, select a rate plan, and — best of all — have your new iPhone 3G ready to make calls, browse the web, and receive email right on the spot.
What to bring.
To purchase and activate iPhone 3G, you need the following:
Social security number
Valid, government-issued photo ID
Your current wireless account number and password or PIN (if you’re new to AT&T)
Remember to sync your current iPhone one last time before you come into the store.
What to expect.
iPhone 3G will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and sales will start at 8:00 a.m.
Arrive early to get in line as daily quantities are limited by stock on hand.
Online, you can check store availability of iPhone 3G. Just return to this page after 9:00 p.m. to check the next day’s availability for any Apple Retail Store. New iPhone shipments arrive most days and availability will be updated nightly.
