    I have the same problem. How to remove that message and really activate the phone on Windows without being an AT&T customer?

    Default false activation
    I had the same issue. I jailbroke using touchfree alpha and it automaticlly 'activated' my iPhone. I thought it was activated, because I could access the springboard. The 'waiting' message popped up every once in a while. Then, I decided to activate using another method. The one described in red at the end of this post worked flawlessly:

    I didn't use SSH for the upload, but I guess it doesn't matter. After I uploaded the file and rebooted I got an 'activation successful' message and this time it was for real.
