AT&T and iPhone 5s

Hi everyone! I have a few questions today;

 

Not sure if you will know this question, but if I go to the Apple Store........I am eligible for an early upgrade on AT&T, can Apple use that price at the store (will they honor it)?

Are all AT&T company stores pretty much guaranteed to have at least a few in stock? I may go there instead. Smiley Happy

Do they have to take the phone out and activate it at an AT&T or Apple Store?

Thank you for any help! Smiley Happy!

AT&T stores will be stocked with the iPhone 5S Smiley Happy You can also order it from the AT&T website if you wish to do so instead. Smiley Happy

They don't have to take the SIM out per se, they can supply a new one if you'd like (which comes pretty installed on the iPhone already anyway Smiley Wink )

Apple connects to the AT&T servers to check upgrade eligibility, so you'll get the same price at Apple as you would at AT&T.

At AT&T stores, they do activate the device before you leave.  They did that with my iPhone 5 last year when I bought it.  I beleive that Apple stores also open the box and go through the activation process there in the store before you leave, but I don't remember positively.  I don't know what will happen at an AT&T franchise store (as compared to an AT&T corporate owned store).  Those stores may not even have any in stock...
