here is what an att rep just told me on the phone. I am trying to activate and port my number from Verizon and going on 13 hours now.I hear what you are saying Maty.. I was told that everything would be up and running by 720 tonight. It had better be. this is complete insanity.
AT&T has finished their part in the activation and now its the Apple that is backed up on things. Once they finish their process, then I will get an email with a link to finish up the activation.
don't know if this is the truth b/c I am still at the step that has to do with the processing of my credit card. Looks like ATT us just passing the buck!
