I'm sure 100's of thousands of people activating at once is something that they weren't able to test for...

I bet it will be hit and miss.

Dunno, I'm a former QA Manager and...

On most SW program testing there are special applications that allow stress/volume testing, I am sure Apple would utilize that on their servers.

True but the hot sweaty fingers of the over anxious Apple fans pressing repeatedly to get it working is hard to emulate ;)


...but yes, you are right; I'm sure they have.

Ah, good point...

The problem isn't with Apple's servers; it's with AT&T's servers.
I used to work for them too, I wouldn't be so certain of them. I cannot stand their customer service any longer either.

They should bring back their "Traffic" Dept, and Green and Brown Book.

I'm sitting here with mine, but I have to wait on an email that says it is activated. Kinda weird.
Yeah I got mines too, still in the box, picked up a signature leather case, Apple Bluetooth on back order all over the country I heard. Had to wait a little while in line, there was maybe 50 people total in line but overall a good experience.

Where are you guys that are having problems located?

I just took mine out the box, and was done in less than 5 mins....I'm now syncing all my music, etc. I'm in Kansas City, MO for reference.

Edit: I'm an existing customer, same number.

Hey Kyle, I am in Atlanta, GA. That may be part of the problem - being a major city and all.
