Hi, I hope you read comments?
Anyway, what I've been trying to find out, is whether they can and will use credit card information to charge people who didn't activate their iPhone money, on behalf of AT&T.
And would it be legal if they did?

No ... activation is not required by an Apple Store purchase But is required by an AT&T store purchase ... If you could elaborate maybe I could help

That already helps, thanks. It just seemed that not allowing cash means they want to know who you are, so they can find you and charge for the two year contract. Also because I read somewhere about costs involved when not taking the contract. That might have ha something to do with activated phones though.
