    Anyone else having issues setting up iMessages? I keep getting an error when trying to sign in over my sons phone. I can get into his account at Apple's website, but it won't save any changes in the account. I am guessing it is overloaded with all the new igifts people received.

    It's probably overloaded because there are thousands of people trying to set up their Christmas presents at the same time. :)

    Give it a few hours and it'll probably calm down.

    Yeah, agree with @OllyW.

    Give it a few hours, hopefully you won't have any issue with it after few hours. Check it again!

    I agree with the above and everyone is sending texts to family and friends wishing "Merry XMAS".

    I haven't had to set up an account, but I've been using it since early this morning and its been working like a champ all day.

    Only thing that isn't working correctly is the App Store.

    Same problem actually.

    Every so often it says "Cannot connect to iTunes Store", even in the middle of browsing it.

    I imagine they'll have it fixed by tomorrow though so it's not a massive problem.
