Just got mine! I was the first in line, as you can see:
However, I was not the first person out of the store. First their system wasn't reading the phone's bar code as an acceptable, registered phone for that store. Then they were having problems completing my credit check and had to call some hotline -- freaking AT&T. Finally, they tell me they can't "unbrick" my phone at the store because their system is backed up, so I'm having to plug it into iTunes here at home. It's still just sitting here with this screen:
I have no idea what to do, other than to just leave it plugged in for however long it takes for something good to happen. I'm going to be real pissed if something is wrong.
Anyway, here are some more pics:
Hopefully, my problems get sorted out. I'll post more pics later
