    And I can't use it for another 6 hours! GAH!!

    I'm at work with a Windows machine and I don't to install iTunes and set it up in Windows because that will just make more work for me when I get home to redo it all with my Mac.

    The wait is going to kill me......;)

    Install iTunes and just activate your phone, you don't have to sync with that pc just unplug it after it's done activating.

    Ah, I didn't know I could do this. I think I will try this.

    LOL I was going to do that if it came this afternoon, but it's a little early for me to take off now. :)

    Oh, and I think it's a week 42 build if I understand how the serial # works. XX042XXXXXX Am I correct?

    The box is open now and WOW! I've held one and played with one before (an iPhone 4, get your minds out of the gutter ;)) but I guess I forgot how beautiful this thing is!

    I've got iTunes installing now and am glad they included a SIM removal tool as I forgot my iPad tool at home and I don't want to be shoving paper clips into my iPhone!

    I wanted to thank you for this. I did it and it worked! Got my new SIM card set up on my carriers web site, then opened iTunes, plugged it in, and got a message "Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked." WOOHOO! And I made a call to it from my office phone and it rang! :D

    The screen is so freakin' clear on this thing!
