"iPhone 3G San Antonio: I waited about 15 minutes for activation, and nobody else's was working either so I just took my phone and left. They kept telling me that wasn't allowed, but I had already paid for the phone so there was nothing they could do to stop me."
He's right, you know. Once you pay for something, it's yours. They can't stop you, or search you, or seize your goods. There's a fourth amendment to the constitution in this country.
I've always thought that that aspect of the plan was a little silly.
And I have to say I was excited about the prospect of getting an iPhone since my cell phone contract is set to expire, but the internet is abuzz with bad news today. Activation of these new phones seems to have hit huge snags on all fronts.
Thank you early adopters for making my possible future purchase easier.
CORRECTION: From the Sinden.org legal team, we've learned that holding the iPhone "[is] like you're cupping a warm baby bird" -- wait, no that's this Gizmodo review. But we have been corrected. The Bill of Rights only has bearing on the government. Common law prevents Apple from detaining you with an unactivated phone (we think, though there's a possible contract violation.)
Are their other insights on this from others who have been through the in-store purchasing process?
