For those of us who had the original iPhone and then waited in line for our 3G, we had to endure a painful 2-step process. We had to first get the iPhone at AT&T or the Apple store, then we had to go home and activate it. While this changed a little for the iPhone 3G, it was still painful having to deal with people who did not know how to sell it to us (mostly AT&T), but we now have a better way. We can get our iPhone directly from the online APple store and have it delivered to our doors. If you have yet to get your hands on an iPhone and want to avoid the hassle of the salemen(or woman), then head over to Apple’s site and get yours now.
