Apple and AT&T Inc. today announced that iPhone users will be able to activate their new iPhones using iTunes at home.

This way you do not have to wait in the store to get your iPhone activated. You could also say, this way more iPhones can be moved in shorter time.

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, you can then sync all of your phone numbers and other contact information, calendars, email accounts, web browser bookmarks, music, photos, podcasts, TV shows and movies just like you do when you sync your iPod with iTunes. "Users will be able to activate their new iPhone in the comfort and privacy of their own home or office, without having to wait in a store while their phone is activated," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "There are tens of millions of people in the US who already know how to sync their iPods with iTunes, and syncing their new iPhone with iTunes works the same way."

Reuters reports that there are supposedly three service plans for the iPhone starting at $59.99 per month. I am still waiting for the details on the plans to surface.
