    I signed up today, and its been several hours and no activation code. I even called the support line and they told me to wait 24 hours.

    I don't want to wait! I want my 3.0 SDK and firmware now.

    What gives?

    ouch, that sucks... maybe they're getting more and more bogged down with the activation part now that they finally got the web site running halway decently...

    There is another possibility - that the people processing the Developer accounts only work office hours (around 9-5) and have all gone home. :)

    So far, I received my 'Order Confirmation' e-mail at 00:19 GMT and 'Order is being Processed' at 02:23 GMT. I placed the order around midnight and the Apple website is showing the order as 'Electronically Delivered' and has done since I placed it.

    See I ordered around 5PM EST. But never even got a confirmation email from the Apple store... but the order is there and it has been electronically delivered. I guess by 5pm EST tomorrow rolls around I don't have it, I'll call up and bitch.

    I am almost having buyers remorse. I didn't think about the fact that installing a buggy 3.0 beta probably isn't the greatest....hmmm...

    i got mine in two hours. i ordered around 7PM. Unfortunately I got some activation error and it said to contact them. This is a pain in the ass. I think you need to make sure that your address on your credit card that you paid with is the same as your name on your itunes account.
