    I am staying with my existing AT&T line, just upgrading from an iPH4. I know there will be a few million phones being activated tomorrow. Any ideas how long will I be without phone service when my old phone goes dead, but before my new phone is activated? Any previous experience from the 4S upgrade?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think the service on the older phone works until it's fully activated on the new one. Though others are welcome to correct me if I'm wrong as my experience is with Verizon.

    For Verizon, Activation is instant. Just call I think *89
