I don’t know what the issue is and AT&T or Apple won’t let me know. But I am now in hour 22 of no phone service. I was out of the store and at my house by 6:20 pm eastern time. I registered my phone and upgraded my phone with AT&T. I received a message that I would receive an email to finalize activation. By 6:45 my old phone was shut off and so was my voicemail. I still can not do anything with my iPhone except crush it or use it as a paper weight. Is anyone else having these problems? I know a lot of people got this phone, but as the first time zone that got it and done by 6:30 I know I had to be done before people in cali:mad:. I have called and get the same responce " we don't know be patient"

well it must certainly be an issue related to your area because i am in the cincinnati area and i plugged my iPhone into my mac, set it up with iTunes, and within like 2 minutes or so i was making calls and surfing the web.

i know that doesn't help you but i was just saying that it isn't a problem everywhere.

good luck

No problems here, either. It was pretty much instant gratification.

No problem in Northern Virginia - got home a few hours after getting it (around 9 or 9:30pm) and was up and running in 2 minutes.
Sorry for your inconvenience.
Did you see the thread on exchanging your SIM card - - maybe yours is defective.

another thread on here was saying to trade your SIM

Someone couldn't get activated so they went back to their AT&T store, popped the SIM out and they gave him a new one. He said he did the registration screen again, and was on in no time...

It will not start you over (we were afraid of the same thing). We got a new SIM, started over with the activation process and within literally seconds we were up and running.

While you're at the AT&T store, have them verify that your account has been activated. That was our situation, active account but bad SIM.

Maybe it's not the phone or the service, maybe it's you.

All you need to do it shut the phone off by holding the sleep button for 3 seconds and then power it back on. This has worked for many people with the same problem.
