I'm sitting here with mine, but I have to wait on an email that says it is activated. Kinda weird.

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.

The problem isn't with Apple's servers; it's with AT&T's 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.

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.

Now up to 2 hours...and waiting...
If you call AT&T's "Number Porting hotline" the message says porting from another wireless carrier may take up to three hours and to wait that long before talking to a rep.

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.
