Setting up an iPhone when purchased directly from Apple?
If you buy an iPhone directly from Apple do you have to go to an Apple Store or your provider to set the phone up? If you switch from Verizon to AT&T or vice versa what do you need to do?

Per Apple's website: The unlocked iPhone works only on supported GSM networks, such as AT&T in the U.S. When you travel internationally, you can also use a micro-SIM card from a local GSM carrier. The unlocked iPhone will not work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint.
In other words, if you buy it outright from Apple without a contract AND unlocked, you can only use it on AT&T's network and I am assuming you'd have to contact AT&T to have it activated.
