    So I download everything and whatnot, and it takes me to the set up screen for iOS5.

    t's telling me it can't activate the iPhone because the activation server is temporarily unavailable?

    Anyone else have this problem? My phone is already activated Idk why it needs to be reactivated?..

    Servers have been getting slammed hard all day. Just give it time. By the way, after updates, iTunes always reactivates the iPhone. This is why jailbreakers/unlockers don't update immediately. We usually don't notice it's reactivating whenever we do a restore on other days, but because today is iOS 5 release day the servers are slammed the there is a queue line for activating iPhone/iPads.

    Yes me, you and probably 20 million others. Now trying my iPad right now but not optimistic.
