    How long are people waiting for acceptance into the iPhone dev program? I applied probably 4 or 5 months ago. About 1.5 months ago I got a message saying my account was being reviewed.

    I applied a few weeks before the app store launch and was accepted on the day it launched.

    Not even an hour for me, and on a week-end too. I thought for sure it would be under review during the week, but lo and behold within an hour I was debugging on the iPhone. Bliss.....

    Seriously? I'm 4 days on a support request to look into this. Nothing on that either. A friend owns his own company and told me he is 2 weeks with nothing from Apple on his application.

    About an hour for me a few days ago. I applied on the iPhone site, paid for it on the Apple store site, then about an hour later got an email with a link in it and a code.

    There was a glitch. I clicked the activation link and it opened the iPhone site page, which I already had open, and nothing was different. After a while I thought to log off the site and click the link in the email again. When I did it this time it took me to the iPhone site and to a page where I could activate my account. After that there was a portal link on the iPhone page when I connected to it with all the additional stuff on pages inside the developer portal.

    Did it ask you to pay in the Apple store right away? I don't remember that step.

    Do you have an ADC Select or Premier membership? I have the free one, but I didn't think it mattered.

    Yes, right away. And it seemed as if they were going to ship me something. And I paid tax on the thing.

    Free one. I've filed a lot of bugs at bugreporter. Do you think that helped ?-)

    From what I've read, individuals get accepted MUCH faster than business'.

    I applied as a LLC I set up (I'm the only employee) and it's basically just me applying as an individual but using my busniess name. Can I reapply as an individual and then still stick my company name on it?

    I was approved in around 18 hours as a Personal developer. That'd be the best route for you, I'd think. Name changing requires you call ADC and from what
    I hear it's quite a lot of red tape. Just sign up for another (personal) account with a different Apple ID! That would cost another $99, but that might faster and less complicated than changing names and changing to a personal account.
