Sprint Iphone 4 Activation/Setup

I've just received my iphone 4 today from Sprint and I've tried activating it by calling different Sprint departments but they said I need wi-fi connection or itunes in order to activate it but the problem is, I don't have neither but u wanted to know is there a way that I can activate the phone without using neither the itunes and wi-fi?

you cant, once the phone is active on your line it requires wifi or itunes to do the final setup

No. The iphone is an Apple product and you need itunes to set it up properly. There is no other way! Just download it on your computer, assuming you have one lol! You're going to need itunes no matter what you plan to do with your phone unless you don't plan to sync it at all with your music or videos etc. You also can't use wireless sync because you have to set it up on itunes first so just get itunes on your computer.

If you don't have a computer or Internet access, go to a Starbucks or mcdonalds or anywhere that has public wifi and activate it.

BTW. How are you posting on this thread?? If you have a wired connection, download iTunes and activate your phone.

Ahh ok. Well go the free wifi route and you should be good. That or go to a sprint store and see if they can assist.

The OP can even go to a sprint store they generally have wifi hotspots on display that could be used to activate (I actually saw them walk a customer through activation using it)

If you're anywhere near an Apple Store that would be a good place to go. Not only do they have free WiFi, but they'd be happy to help you get it activated.
