Could Not Activate iPhone 4S

Just picked up your iPhone 4S? Excited? You should be.

But that excitement may be quickly quelled when you try to activate your new device.

Apparently, AT&T’s servers are getting hammered, and it’s causing activation to fail over, and over, and over…

Upon initially setting up your new iPhone 4S, you’re greeted with a message baked in by the carrier stating that “It may take up to 3 minutes to your iPhone”. It looks like AT&T wasn’t prepared for the influx of new activations. Surprise.

How are things working on Sprint or Verizon? Are you experiencing similar issues, or is it smooth sailing?
