    that sucks about the deposit but it depends on company policy i luckily was not required to leave any deposit. were you at a corporate store?

    but there are corporate stores which are owned by AT&T and just regular stores the offer AT&T service. a corporate store might require a less of deposit. look on cingular website for store locator this should tell you which are corporate stores.

    Generally when you have to deposit it is because you either don't have enough credit, or bad credit. I got the iPhone 3GS as a brand new customer, and with 0 deposit.

    deposit's are only required when first activating your line. not at upgrades or contract renewals

    Oh ok. Never mind then!

    Well, I did sign up with AT&T (new line, switched from Sprint) last year and got the 3G and had to leave no deposit either.
