Thread: iPhone 4 Activation problems

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 4 Activation problems
    Well I am glad I received my beautiful iphone a day early but I cannot activate it

    I followed the steps in the email that was sent to me and this is what I get on the web site about an hour after I tried.

    Device activation failed.
    iPhone 4 - 16GB Black XXX-XXX-XXXX


    This device could not be activated. Call Premier Support at 1-866-499-8008, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time.


    I called ATT premier and was on hold for 30 minutes, finally got a hold of someone and have been on hold for 5 minutes while she attempts to find my account!

    She comes back and says my system is operating very slow and I having problems locating your account so I will transfer you to the customer care center to help with the activation. And we are having a heavy call volume today so there is a long queue. NS!

    On hold again with the awful music!

    It is if this is a pervasive problem a day before the launch.

    Anyways, after about 45min on the phone with ATT, I got the phone activated.

    so I guess I'm gonna have to call huh? cuz mine is not activating either. Did you restore from backup or Start as New? cuz I restored from backup so I think that's the issue

    EDIT: np called and automated system activated it.

    Some people are having greater success by activating online.

    I just cut my old sim from my 3gs and popped it into the micro sim tray. Connected it to itunes and my 4 was activated.
