    AT&T doesn't let you do anything without renewing your contract. They are also very picky about which phones they will activate. Even if you get an "approved" phone from a 3rd party they will probably make you renew your contract for a year to activate it.

    If you get a phone that is set for AT&T Wireless service (for example on Ebay), they should be able to activate it without any service contract, right? They may charge you about $30 as activation fee, but I'd be surprised if they just out-and-out refused to activate the phone.

    They SHOULD be able to activate it without a contract, but they WONT. Even if you already have a contract, they will make you extend it if you just switch phones (or even if you just change rate plans).

    Wrong..... Its only if you buy the at&t phone directly from them, but if you buy one from say "BEST BUY" and call in to have it activiated on your account no contract extension, also no fee as long as it is at&t direct.

    Yup - I just did exactly that. I am on contract until 2004 and had a 3360. I bought a 6360 off Ebay, called them and asked to do an ESN change. No problem - they did it right on the phone with no contract extension (at least none that I'm aware of!)

    I would activate it for you, AT&T direct retail doesnt charge activation on customer owned equipment unless the phone was on a account previously that had an outstanding balance, then the system will not allow it to be activated.......nor will att activate old analog phones.... AT&T cannot make you extend service for activating a phone that you own or one you bought from a dealer, if they do then you need to talk to the manager
