I just want the phone. In the box. Unopened.
I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, they do have to open it. I know, it sucks - most techies would MUCH rather be the first person outside of the factory that birthed it to fondle their new gadget. But I think they have to activate it on the network before you walk out of the store. Which obviously makes no sense since AT&T will ship you a sealed box and let you slap in your own SIM and call in on your own, but expecting logic out of retailers is asking too much.
