Just got an Apple Dev Subscription. Did something wrong. Phone bricked.

    I went in, paid the 100 bucks. Downloaded iOS5b5. Registered my UDID. Installed on my 3GS.

    And now I get the error:

    "We're unable to complete your activation.
    This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program.
    If you are a member of the Program, please register your device in the iPhone Developer Program Portal."


    So I thought maybe I had entered the UDID wrong?
    Nope.. Downloaded the iPhone Configuration Utility and verified the UDID. It was correct.

    What am I doing wrong? Is my phone going to stay bricked?

    Sometimes it takes a while before they are active in the system as registered....

    Have you had an email from apple confirming that your developer account is now active?

    Wait a little while, then put your phone into DFU mode and restore using the iOS 5 firmware. Should work then. Sometimes it takes a little while before it will activate, even if you registered the UDID already.
