Contract Set-Up Takes 7-10 Minutes At Apple Stores
We just wanted to let everyone dreading the in-store sign up process know that it went extremely well for us. After being ushered into the Apple Store, I was quickly assigned a Product Specialist who asked what iPhone I wanted, grabbed one for me, and started the process. Cool thing is, they don’t even need to be at a console. The entire process is performed using their handheld checkout machines. In all, the whole process of getting set up with AT&T took about 7 minutes (you can watch the whole ceremony and process here).
Of course, your milage may vary and we’re still waiting on iTunes to activate. Let us know how it went for you!
