    Says my activation is still pending. And that they're sorry there was a problem connecting to the server and to try later??? Anyone else with this issue?

    Same here. I wonder why? Could it be the other 150k people all trying to activate at the same time? :p

    I just attempted to activate. Got the error. I'll wait a little while then try again.

    Update: Worked on the 7th try.

    Still trying. 5th attempt. Damn AT&T and their servers. ;-)

    I can't image what the scene must be like inside the retail stores if activation is taking this long.

    The message you get on iTunes is confusing, because on the one hand it says it is pending, and on the other it says to try again later. So do I just wait or do I try again?

    Finally, After 10 tries...

    keep trying, mine finally worked. It doesn't matter. I did it through my computer. When it would tell me to start again I would just unplug the usb from the computers end and re-plug it and the phone is recognized by iTunes again and you can start the process over.
