All I can do at this time is "Nothing"...

Do i need to wait for the phone to completely charge or something?

I can only get to he IMEI: ICCID screen....

It's telling me to "activate phone"....

What am I not doing correctly?

Are you serious? Did you activate it through iTunes? I mean did you try to do so? It wont activate on its own. Read instructions

The phone is already charged when you buy it.

You just have to put it in its dock, connect it to your usb port and activate the phone through iTunes. Just like the directions say.

I also tried "download 7.3" - nothing happens...takes me to the "Thank You" page.....frustrating...deal with it tomorrow...

The moment I plug in the iPhone and USB to my PC, it should prompt me to AT&T to activate it right?

Have you ever downloaded anything before? Downloading iTunes works the same way. You install it, it detects your iPhone and you activate it

Lololol! I feel like I'm talking to my grandma. If you are not computer literate than you need to return the iPhone. It will save you frustration. Go take a computer class.

I wonder what computer os he is using? I have several computers, when I first tried to activate the iPhone I tried it on Win 2000 pro and it would not reconize the iPhone, then put it on Win XP and it was done in about 2 minutes. So he should try that.

You're going to become real good friends with the Apple store there in SF! Thankfully it's a great store.

Dumb question, but what is trolling?
An example would be coming into a group and asking stupid question or saying stuff just to start panic or a fight. Usually it can be identified by just simply outrageous comments or remarks.
