I received my pre-ordered IPhone 4S today and to my utter dismay it wouldn't activate. Surprise! Tried iTunes, I tried the OTA activation and nothing. I took it to my local Apple Store. The "geniuses" were stumped. They commented how the pre order phones were having similar problems in that activation wasnt working. However, they did mention that if I purchase through the store the activation works differently. So I asked for a swap and they wouldn't let me. I asked to return my phone and they wouldn't let me. I offered to buy a new one and my upgrade credit couldn't be re-applied. Here I am 12 hours - phone is un-bricked but AT&T won't recognize my phone still. While I realize patience is a virtue, I am very disappointed that this process isn't more seamless. Fool me once, fine. It's not like this is the first time this has happend. What happend to the good old days of just doing a sim swap on a GSM phone. Anyone having the same issue that didn't pre order?
