so this sucks, go through, to activate the phone, and it gets to a point after all the info's entered etc and then it says "this could take up to 6 minutes to activiate etc" well, it took more then 6 minutes, then went to a screen saying " check your email because we need more time to activate your phone etc" which wouldn't bother me to bad, if i could play with the phone, but u cant get past the first screen where it tellls u to activate the phone.....so now i have ot sit here and wait for the email and i cant even play with my new Toy!:mad:

Can you type into it in the landscape mode as well? Saw it on TV, and the
reporters showed only how tiny the letter keys are when the iPhone is held
in its upright position. If only upright? - That sucks!

this wouldn't be nearly as terrible waiting if i could "play" with it....just staring a emergeny call screen is getting VERY boring, VERY fast.. 1 hour and 30 minutes and waiting...

i tried calling the activation line, but after im on hold for about 2-3 minutes, the phone call drops every time...seems like they are doing it on purpose or something.

My online activation attempt failed because I get a discount for being a Government employee. I am on hold for the businesss center so they can remove it. After I get activated they will put it back on.
