Following are the e-mails received from both iTunes and AT&T when activating the iPhone. The data on the order and content of these e-mails is based on contributions from other forum posters and my personal experiences. If you've received an e-mail that I haven't listed, please post below (and include where in the order you received it). ORDER OF E-MAILS The order and e-mails you receive may differ slightly, but this should be a reasonable indicator of where you are in the process. Key is as follows: V=Received when transferring from Verizon E=Received when error has occurred A=Received by practically all users Your phone number transfer requires 24 hours to complete (V) From: <iPhone_Activation_Support@att.com> AT&T is now processing your activation (A, V) From: iTunes Store <firstname.lastname@example.org> ------ E-mails that list any errors in the activation process are commonly sent now, after the first two e-mails above. Additional information required to activate your iPhone (E) From: <iPhone_Activation_Support@att.com> "Rate plan not compatible with iPhone" (E) From: <iPhone_Activation_Support@att.com> ------ Transfering Your Mobile Number (V) From: iTunes Store <email@example.com> Service Activation Complete / Activation Complete (A, V) From: iTunes Store <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mobile Number Transfer Complete From: iTunes Store <email@example.com> Thanks for registering your iPhone.
