  • At&T activation servers go down
    Well it was bound to happen, many stores, both AT&T and Apple, are experencing extremely slow or no activations at all. Reports from Engadet are saying the stores are sending the people home with their new phones so they can activate it from there....which i find very interesting.

    10:32AM ET: Indeed, depending on what employee you talk to, in-store activation via iTunes is either "slow" or "down" -- but either way, they're handing you the phone unactivated, which needs to be completed by connecting to iTunes from the comfort of your home. Beware: if you're upgrading, your old SIM will be immediately bricked, so you'll be phoneless until you complete the activation!
    If you look at the screens, you can see the one crashed lol

    EDIT

    One of our own members, who happens to work for AT&T just sen tus this info:

    I work for AT&T. The reason iTunes is running slow is due to the amount of users accessing at once. Apple is suppose to be working on fixing the issue. I know this because my POS system from AT&T is displaying this as a global message.
    So there you have an official confirmation, thanks to our member sol2345

      So here's a crazy question: I'm on Fido/Rogers. Since they are the partner for Canada, I'm wondering if a CLEAN install of 2.0 would accept my Fido SIM as valid on my previously unlocked 1st Gen iPhone.

      I've wondered the same thing...but I don't think it works that way otherwise someone could have boughten one from AT&T and then used it on Orange without unlocking. Besides, who cares when there will be an unlock solution the same time as jailbreak...and waiting a few days sometimes can be a very very smart move.

      No luck in Medford, OR.

      They are sending everyone home from the AT&T store,
      and iTunes still won't connect back here..

      I waited in line for 6 hours. I got my white 16gb this morning. I came home, plugged it up and it activated on the second try. But it won't let me sync anything to it. I can still make calls though.

      Well, like everyone else I got my 16GB white iphone not activated still in box, took it home and it wouldn't work. I closed itunes and went ahead and ran an ipconfig /flushdns (like someone suggested) and then hooked back up and it activated OK. I had been unpluggin replugging mine for about an hour before that. Just FYIing.
