    Anyone having extreme difficulty activating their iphone 5 on ATT? Phone works great, but I cant get to work nor can I receive SMS. iMessage works, WiFi works, ATT rep says it's b/c of network traffic not allowing the device to communicate with the network and to work through the activation. I'm presuming they meant too many people trying to activate their new phones at the same time. ATT says could take 24 hours. :mad: Any thoughts?

    Mine took 3 tries until I got it activated but believe it was because when the phone turned on the activation screen came before the network was fully initialized.
