my brother and i both had verizon. my brother and i both bought iPhones right after each other. my brother activated and synced on a PC. I am still attempting to activate on a MAC. I am still waiting for my "email". My brother has service and everything, his old number, the works. I got an email saying it would be 24 hours at least. It obviously isn't regional, or provider, why?

I have no idea. You should probably be ok.. because you're just waiting for a WONDERFUL EMAIL.

It's up to 3 hours for me now.... :(

Still waiting here also. It's been around a hour and a half for me. Did some of you get an email saying it would be 24 hours before your activation? I'm an existing AT&T customer also.

I think that's for some people that are porting numbers from other carriers.

I'm still waiting. It's been almost three hours since the first email about needing additional time to complete.:(
