Activation and Setup Video For iPhone Now Online

Apple has posted a new video on their website which shows prospective customers how to set up their iPhone. Interestingly, it is all done through iTunes -- even for existing AT&T customers. The iTunes setup process will even allow people to easily transfer their existing phone number. Wow, this is really cool, because it means buying an iPhone will basically just be a retail experience--like buying an iPod. Leave it to Apple to change the way cell phones are programmed. No more waiting for pimply faced teenie-boopers to call the home office and enter some secret code so you new phone can work. Thank you Steve.

Press Release:

Apple and AT&T Inc. today announced that iPhone users will be able to activate their new iPhones using Apple's popular iTunes software running on a PC or Mac computer in the comfort and privacy of their own home or office, without having to wait in a store while their phone is activated. Activating iPhone takes only minutes as iTunes guides the user through simple steps to choose their service plan, authorize their credit and activate their iPhone. Once iPhone is activated, users can then easily sync all of their phone numbers and other contact information, calendars, email accounts, web browser bookmarks, music, photos, podcasts, TV shows and movies just like they do when they sync their iPods with iTunes.
