iPhone To Be Activated From Home Via iTunes
Steve Jobs just made public another first in the cell phone industry. This time, it is the fact that iPhone purchasers will actually self-activate their phones from home. Typically, when buying a cell phone from any carrier, you have to wait while they perform the unboxing for you and set everything up. This normally takes at least 20 minutes or so, and was the main worry of those looking to purchase an iPhone at launch. Now we know that all you need to do is have your cash, check, or credit card ready so that you can complete the purchase and go on your way. Once home, when you hook it up to your Mac or PC, iTunes pops up, and you give it all the required information necessary for activation - that being SSN, credit card number, personal details, etc. You must be running Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later (sorry Panther users!); Windows XP Home or Pro with Service Pack 2 or later; or Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Edition.
For all the details, head on over to the link below, where Apple shows off iPhone activation in a sleek video.
