iWait

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.

  1. Nothing quite as painful sitting around looking at your $600 paperweight and twiddling your thumbs. My verizon switchover took 8 hours, but definetly worth it! (Posting from my phone)

  3. Have a look at this thread:http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/97150Well over 700 comments already. Lots of very angry people. Some have already waited 36 hours or more for their phones to be blessed. I feel especially sorry for the die hard fans who waited in line all day on Friday, left the Apple store like a kid on Christmas morning, and are *still* waiting for the damn thing to start up.And Apple’s decision to brick all features on the iPhone until it’s activated certainly isn’t helping the situation… another place where a bit of consideration for the edge cases would have been a good idea…
