I got my spiffy new iPhone5 today, 16GB black. Truly, a very nice piece of technology. No scratches, either. I followed the enclosed instructions to get the phone activated. I'm coming from a Droid X, so I've never used 4G / LTE before. Anyway, the activation didn't work, so I called VZW to see what the problem was. I was told that my SIM was in "RS Status" mode, whatever that is. Essentially, the rep told me that there are so many phones being activated right now that my request was backed up in some system queue, and it would take a while (perhaps minutes, or hours, not real specific) to get the activation complete. WiFi works great, but it will still be a while before I can use LTE and make calls and such. Bummer.
