    Just got the phone and am going through setup as a new device. I get to the "Apple ID" sign-in page for iCloud, type in my credentials, click "Next", the screen flickers, but then right back to the same sign-in page. Have verified my email address and retyped my password 3 times.

    What gives?

    Apparently this is what happens if you don't have network access when trying to log in. An error message would have been nice.

    And now getting "Could Not Sign In" -- "A server problem is blocking Apple ID sign in. Try signing in later."

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I would guess the login/auth servers are getting pretty hammered right now. It'll work, just be patient with it. :)

    Finally got through after connecting to wifi. I might have a problem with the cellular connection.
