Question I got my iPhone 4!! But I can't receive calls...

Well, I picked it up 6 hours ago, and data works, outgoing calls work, everything is seriously perfect. No yellow or green in the camera. No yellow on the screen. No proximity sensor issues. Death grip is simply a pain in the ass to reproduce, so it's honestly a non-issue (pun slightly intended).

I only have one problem. Is it normal that I'm not able to receive calls soon after activation/switching to AT&T? I can call people, but they can't call me. It just goes to voicemail. It's not really been a big deal since I don't call too much...but if it persists for a while that's gonna be a big problem. Oh, and myWireless can't get any usage statistics for me.

I know that the second paragraph is a direct copy of a post I just wrote on the first impressions thread, but I was going to make a thread for this anyway.

Please help. When you switched to AT&T could you receive calls immediately? My number is already ported.

Did you port your number over from another carrier? If so, then yes, that is the reason. It can take several hours for your number to be fully ported over.

If that doesn't work, then turn off your phone, reinsert your SIM card, and turn phone back on.

Thanks! I ported from T-Mobile PAYG. Hopefully it'll be fixed tomorrow, or I'll spend some time on 611

Geez

Another lost soul who thinks the iPhone makes and receives calls.

The travesty.

Who will put these rumors to rest?

I meant that it's not a big deal TEMPORARILY. You would have known that if you read the next sentence that said something to the effect of that it would be a big deal if it continued for a few days.

When I ported from Sprint last year it took a couple of hours so the number was fully ported, just wait a couple of hours OP.
