Though it isn't a full home-based activation like the original iPhone, it may be nice as the busy buying season approaches.

This is really smart from Apple. I bet they designed this method to avoid and lower Holiday Season shopping wait lines.

They make it so difficult because of all the fraud people try and pull. I work for AT&T and help customers wanting to cancel and iPhone 3G has been a huge issue. Mainly those wanting to sell the phones and not pay ETF's since they are cancelling within 30 days but not returning equipment. It's pretty ridiculous and I understand why they are slow to allow online ordering and have kinda harsh stipulations.

They still have to pass credit.....they can order the phone and pay for it over the internet, but still may require a deposit and aren't told about it till they get to the store.....lol...what a joke
