OK 2 minutes after I hit send for my last post my iPhone 4S sprung to life. OMG I AM LOVING SIRI! :)

I said Siri, what is the best smart phone in the whole universe and she replied, "What, there are other smart phones?" lol :)

lol, i just asked that same question and she said "The one your holding"...pretty neat random generator algorithm programed in here.. also told Siri to remind me to pick up eggs or whatever when i leave work, it sets up a geo fence around work, and as soon as i break the fence to go home i get a reminder...simply amazing.

Wow. I guess the 24th time was the charm. Restoring now. Anxious to try Siri.

I did an activation attempt over the air and rather then saying you'll get an email it said turn off and back on and try again. So I did and it worked. I hope this helps.

As an FYI I did not activate on-board the 4S or through iTunes. AT&T must have done it on their end it just happened. I (nicely) begged and pleaded I guess they did it.

Which do you do first, sync with iTunes or do the activation or does it matter?

My set up was smooth as butter. Did the activation that went through right away & setting the phone up was easy too.
