Apple has posted some information regarding where to buy the iPhone 3G and what to bring to the store so you can get up and running. According to Apple, in-store activations will occur at Apple's retail stores.

"Let a Specialist help you choose your iPhone, check the network coverage where you live, select a rate plan, review the contract terms, and - best of all - activate your new iPhone in just a few minutes," the Apple page explains.

Apple suggests having the following information handy to make the activation process speedy:

  • Credit card
  • Social security number
  • Valid government-issued photo ID
  • Current wireless account number and password or PIN (if you're new to AT&T)
Apple also provides information for new iPhone owners on how to organize their data to make it ready for the iPhone. All of this information can be found on Apple's Where to Buy website.
