    Do you have any thing special with your at&t account.

    Like for me. I have the family texting plan. The family texting plan gave me a hard time when I was first buying my iPhone 3GS for apple.com, I had to cancel it then order the iPhone. After I ordered the iPhone i put the plan back on.
    I am also activating with the new sim card that came with the 3GS.

    Mine sat at the waiting to activate for the entire time i synced. I then restarted the phone and within seconds it was good. I suggest trying it.

    Mine was sitting there "searching" for a while, so I restarted it and it activated right away.

    It took 30 minutes. I rebooted about 5 times before it activated.
