Default Activation Issues

Went by the store and picked my TB up this morning (was the first one to get one there), and they are having activations issues here in NC and TN. Great late launch day, lol.

Hardware looks great, and I'm up and running on wifi just to get my stuff loaded, but no incoming or outgoing calls till they get it sorted out.

I was the first one in my store as well. It took a while to get activated. Now I'm home and the data connection seems to be off and on.

I ended up restarting phone and it connected to Google immediately. Took a long time to get the rep to listen to me though.

Mine seemed to activate fairly quickly, about 5 minutes or so.

I'm still out, just put a call in to our local office and my rep is going to check on it. Just playing with the phone it's definitely MUCH better than my Inc was, now to just get root & s-off, and get rid of some of this bloatware, lol.

Also the first person in, took about 15 minutes to get mine to activate. He said they were experiencing problems.

Possibly I'm close enough to NC to be included in their problems!

Same here with slow activation in Indiana. Then they couldn't swap phone numbers with my old phone (did add a line). The 4G SIM in the TBolt would not give up its assigned phone number. After half an hour they sent me home with the phone and said they would call when they had a fix. The guy just called and said I have to come in to finish it because the fix is to program a new SIM to swap the numbers.
Data working fine, though.
