I cant get iPhone to activate through iTunes.

Everytime it goes to open up I get the following message:

Could not complete the iTunes store request. The store may be busy...try again later. I can access the store just fine, but it won't open up the iPhone page. (and yes running 7.3)

I've been trying for hours and it just won't open up. I have received my email stating it's activated but iTunes just wont connect to activate the phone.

not fun.

any ideas on what to do?

I have the exact same thing happen. I'm just gonna wait a day. I assume its launch day overload related.

Waitng a day is not an option as I have my own businesss and I have no phone right now because of this. My other phone was deactivated and now my iPhone is the replacement, but it wont activate. NOT GOOD.

I have an early day tomorrow and having no way for my customers to call me is not acceptable.

damn it!

I walked out of the Apple store at 6:08pm with two 8Ggs. By 7pm, I was activated and using it without issue. So perhaps, just so many people activating, the system is bogged down.

I I had the same happen to me. I got really frustrated. I decided to try turning the phone off by holding down the sleep button for 3 seconds. When I turned it back on, I was activated and in businesss. Give it a try! I'm typing this on my phone now with a horizontal keyboard.
