    Good morning everyone.

    With my 6 plus arriving tentatively Thursday, I am curious if it will be problematic to activate the phone from home. I am going to assume that there will be directions included outside of syncing it to my iTunes on my Mac. Is there anything that I should know in advance? Please bear in mind I have only activated at stores in the past.

    Thanks for the help

    Call in and activate it. Its the fastest way. Other than that, restore from either iTunes or icloud, your choice.

    I activated my wife's iphone 6 last night, first by following the link in the confirmation email we got when we ordered the phone. Nothing happened after 20 minutes. Called and it was activated immediately.

    Now, if I could just have that experience with the Plus I ordered, I'd be a happy man.

    I don't have the 6+ yet. I'm with AT&T but TMobile should be the same.
