It's possible.  Mind you, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Apple agreed to this to make it more palatable to carriers.  On the other hand, neither would it surprise me to learn that Apple is basically just saying "We're selling phones; it's up to you carriers to attract subscribers."  I can also see existing subscribers being irate at having to activate a new line when their existing line is out of contract, or no longer obligated in some other fashion.
FWIW, my daughter regularly switched her SIM with her friends' phones when she was younger.  AT&T has never batted an eye, even updating my account page to reflect the changed phone.  She did this when we had a contract subsidized phone, and she also recently did it because she broke her own and hasn't had he deductible to get it replaced.  We're currently on the NEXT thing with her phone.  We've never paid an activation fee when doing this. I think the "activation" fee is...
What would be funny is if the movie house piped "Hey Siri, turn my phone off" through the sound system.  I don't think that works to turn the phone off, though.
Not all value for which trades occur is directly monetary.

 If my iPhone 6 lasts as long as my 4 (not 4s) did, I expect to hold on to it for quite a while, short of some "must have" feature.  The two main reasons I upgraded from my 4 were AT&T's Next program, and the fact that my battery wasn't holding a charge.  Yes, I could have replaced the battery (and did, before I sold it), but the 6 had some other features I found interesting, if not in the "must have or die" category.
 Just to clarify, it wasn't the internet that was down, just some, mostly mobile, providers' access to it.  My work and home internet were fine, and it worked on my phone when I was in wifi.
So, the headlines will be "iPhone, iPad sales tank in the face of wearables!" Seems legit.
Too little, too late.   Already uninstalled...
That's only because the EFF doesn't know about the backdoor that Echelon has had since the first iPhone. /s
 I presume you're looking for bike trails and bike friendly roads?  I'd really be grateful for that as well.
