    I just did this about 3 weeks ago. And I asked if I could activate it later, just for the heck of it. And the guy told me if they did that, they would have to sell me the phone at full retail.

    Has to be done there unless you buy it at retail price but I don't they have it at Best Buy for retail price.

    did they change this?

    because when I purchased my Iphone way back when the phone did not work walking out of the store..

    I had to take it home and connect it to itunes the phone would not even turn on before doing it
