Yea same for me too. I figure it’s congested.
sucks cause I want to turn TrueTone off and see what th display looks like already
anti climatic haha
Same. It’s Apple not the carriers it seems.
What’s the work around here?? Just keep pressing activate?? (Verizon here)
Lots are having trouble.

They should have it back up and running by Sunday!
I'm glad we pay through the azzzz to companies like AT&T, who earn billions, so that they can never be ready every year.
On AT&T, if you have an existing SIM. Just reuse it and skip the delayed activation and also save the activation fee.
How do you do that? I put in the sim from my 7 plus but it’s not letting me skip the activation screen.
You just pop the old sim into the new phone? No other process?
Looks like T&T has changed it so you can no longer do that to make sure they get their fees.
That’s what I usually do. Saves the activation fee. But I can’t get pass the activation screen now.
This won't solve this issue. If anything, it would only skip the activation with ATT, but this seems to be an issue activating with Apple which swapping SIM's won't fix.
No, there are 2 activations. The Apple "Activation" servers are being pounded and also the Carrier SIM "Activation" servers are being also pounded.
This happens every year!
With the already activated sim in my 7+, still gets hung on showing my phone # and thats it then error
Should i put in the SIM provided i preordered on mine line contract free, or the sim that works with 7+ ?
I've done exactly that with my AT&T SIMs since the first nano-SIM. I buy the Verizon models, pull the Verizon SIM before turning on, replace it with an AT&T SIM and it usually works.
For me, it gets worse. I'm on AT&T Prepaid (ex-GoPhone). They wouldn't allow an iPhone X order at pre-order time, so I did like I usually do -- used Verizon account info to order the phone. It won't activate the phone and the Verizon number is showing on the screen.
Looks like I'm going to be in activation hell with a $1000 paperweight for awhile this time.
It took forever. Both of my phones got locked out there for a few minutes and my Apple ID account got locked. What a mess but if finally got fixed.
Did you use SIM provided or your sim that u were using prior to X arriving? What carrier?
yup I did had same thing took me 30 mins keep on trying. Guess ATT service was busy. but it all good now.
With SIM already in phone or swapped with the one u used before that?
Dang it i got to phone # and onto SSN and billing zip and then it crashed.
Verizon. I used the sim provided. It just took forever. I was on the phone for a good 25 minutes with CS and it would never activate(on work phone). Then I just sat it down and all of a sudden messages started populating.
I had the same issue. I hit try again and it let me continue but it still didn't have service. I ended up swapping sims and now all is good and fine. Keep in mind I used the new iOS 11 feature for setting up a new device from old.
if you go through apple upgrade program. att doesn't charge you an activation fee. At least even with my iphone 7 plus that i bought full price. I had no activation fee.
I use SIM that was in slot. I did tried swap with att sim didn't work then I put back original sim in. then got thur it
