Credit card, social security number required for iPhone 3G purchase

Credit card, social security number required for iPhone 3G purchase

Apple will require customers purchasing iPhone 3Gs from its retail stores to present a credit card, social security number and a valid, government-issued photo ID, quashing speculation that the company would sell iPhone 3Gs to individuals without AT&T contracts for later activation. A disclaimer states: "New two-year contract required. Qualified customers only; credit check required."

The iPhone 3G will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and sales at Apple retail locations will start at 8:00 a.m on July 11.

Apple also says: "Current and new iPhone users who now receive or will receive service under a corporate account and wish to purchase iPhone 3G need to contact AT&T directly."
