thanks to justin; got my iphone this morning. seems cool; screen looks great. activation not so much. i’m pretty sure that to keep the iTunes activation UI really simple (which is was), they didn’t deal with a lot of edge cases. we’ve got a family plan, plus i’ve got a blackberry-oriented plan — i think that at&t’s simple system couldn’t figure it out, so it got booted into a human queue, no doubt off-shored somewhere. been a couple of hours now — we’ll see how long the wait goes.
