Apple Posts Details for iPhone 3G Launch

Apple has posted guidelines about what to bring and expect at the iPhone 3G launch at Apple Retail stores.

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.

In order to purchase and activate your iPhone 3G, you will need (U.S. Stores):

- Credit card
- Social security number
- Valid, government-issued photo ID
- Your current wireless account number and password or PIN (if youre new to AT&T)

Apple reminds users to sync their existing iPhones before coming into the store and that sales start at 8:00 a.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. Stock will be replenished daily and Apple will offer a daily online status check of inventory after the launch.

An important note for business customers, Apple warns that corporate accounts must contact AT&T directly and that these will not be processed at Apple stores. While Apple posts no caveats for current AT&T non-iPhone owners, one reader has been told by Apple Retail stores that current non-iPhone AT&T customers ineligible for upgrade should visit AT&T stores.
