The rumored comeback of the iPhone home activation may have just been a case of a story that’s too good to be true.

BGR got to chat with an Apple retail store employee and got the low down on this speculated service, and according to what was discussed in their conversation, it’s just a means for people to pre-activate at home so that when they do get their iPhone in an AT&T or Apple store, they won’t have to undergo the long process of activation. It’s sort of just fast tracking the current procedure similar to making a reservation at a restaurant so that you won’t have to wait for a table.

Yeah, it’s a real bummer, but who knows, nothing’s official yet so there may still be hope. Unfortunately, while I do wish only the best, logic is strongly urging me to believe the Apple store employee's story and just give up on the whole idea.
