Hey, I just received an iphone 3Gs for christmas, I upgraded from an iphone 3G. I hooked the 3gs up to ituneson my macbook and went through all the registration and regular steps, but for 10 or so hours my phone has had Waiting for activation, This may take some time. I of course have no service. Any suggestions or advice?
Thanks in advance.
Iphone 3Gs iPhone OS 3.1.2
I have downloaded an app on my iPhone4, however, it is larger than 20MG so it had prompted me to either access WIFI or connect to iTunes. I connected to itunes and downloaded it off my iMac. Problem is the icon remains in waiting then changes to loading then prompts me yet again to access WIFI or iTunes. What have i done wrong?
okay so i have had my iphone 3gs for about 8 months now and this is the 2nd time this problem has come up. i wake up one morning to find my iphone with no signal when i usually get 3-4 bars throughout my house (yes Ive taken it to a different location to test it) but it just responses with no service and this a message comes up and it says waiting for activation. i have tried resetting my networking settings etc i have tried restarting the phone and restoring it via itunes. I have no idea what the problem is or how to solve it

Help! I bought an iPhone 3Gs over 24 hours ago and its still not activating. I get the following message:
Waiting for activation
This may take some time
Ive phoned O2 about it and they were their usual useless selves. Is this normal or should I go back to the shop and get them to fix it? The WiFi works perfectly - I just cant activate the phone so as to make phone calls or use 3G. I understand there were considerable activation delays in the US launch - perhaps the same is true here. Is anyone else experiencing this?
All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Please help me!
I keep getting waiting for activation on my iMessage. I can only send/receive iMessage from my email address, NOT my phone number.
Under Receive at, my phone number isnt listed at all and I have no way of adding it.
Ive checked under setting phone my number. And the phone # is listed correctly. (I live in Indonesia so its +62xxxxx).
And Im not sure if this is connected or not, but under setting phone show my caller ID, the ON button is greyed out.
A little history & weird problems I encountered:
My iPhone 4S was stolen about a month ago (Im still ****** about it).I did a remote wipe on it and I figured the person who stole is has thrown away the SIM card because the number isnt active anymore.
So I just bought a brand new iPhone 4S and a new number again. I synced it to iTunes and upgraded it to iOS 5.1 then I did a restore from my old back up. Everything was fine except for the iMessage. It shows waiting for actvation. When I tap under Receive At, the email address is listed as well as my OLD phone number (the one that was stolen). It was greyed out and the status was verying which later turned to error. I have no way of editing or removing that old number. When I connect my iPhone to iTunes, the phone # was shown as n/a on iTunes, but after 30 mins or so, it will appear.
So I did a restore again and this time set is as a new iPhone. The old phone number is now gone, but only my email address is listed. I cant input my phone number there.
I have done all kind of fixing suggestions that I can find online, but nothing works so far.
- Date & time set as automatic (I dont know why this matter, but mine was already set as automatic from the begining)
- Reset network setting
- Changing the DNS to 18.104.22.168.
- Restore to factory setting (from back up & as new iPhone)
- Turning on/off iMessage & facetime
- Sign out/in of apple ID
- Change location from apple ID
- Hard reset/reboot
And many others.
Is this an error on my iPhone or maybe the iOS or is it the carrier?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
When I click to install an app, the icon that pops up is grey and says waiting... No loading or anything, just complete inactivity. Also, I cant delete the icon, it just sits there, whats the deal here?
iPhone iOS 4
Updated to iOS5 around noon today. My iMessage still says Waiting for activation..., someone told me there was a email I was supposed to receive. I never got one. How do I get Apple to resend said email, or more to the point - activate iMessage on my Telus iPhone 4?
So i have a crappy internet connection on my 1st generation iPhone,well was messing around with it today and decided to finally update the apps i keep on seeing need an update on the iTunes store. Well long story short i go and click on update all and now i have 10 apps stuck at waiting. Their icons are gone,its only gray boxes with the bar in black and the words waiting... at the bottom dont know what i can do,this has never happened to me before,please help!

Is there an application which gives a visual indicator as to whether there is mail waiting, when the screensaver is on ?
I dislike logging in after every time I leave the phone for a while, just to find out there is no mail - perhaps something akin to the red flashing light available on the Blackberry, indicated mail is waiting and is therefore worth bothering entering the password ?

I updated my iPhone4 to the new 4.1 software yesterday and then went to update an App that I have been using for ages. However all that has happened is that the App icon has gone lank and it says Waiting.... it has been saying this now for over 12hrs. I tried installing a new app as well to see if this might make it work, but it is now doing the same thing.
does anyone have any ideas how i can fix this?

I downloaded galaxy on fire from the app store and when it put it onto my home screen it also put another box which is just grey in colour and says waiting underneath it. When I press and hold it, it doesnt have the x to delete it so its stuck on my home screen.
Any ideas how to get rid of it.
Oh and I tried deleting the original app but it made no difference.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have bought a iPhone 3G 8GB from ebay. I have checked the IMEI number on checkmend and there are no reported problems. It is apparently on o2 but I want to unlock it for use on Vodafone. I have bought a o2 pay as you go sim card so that I can get it unlocked properly but when I insert it I get the message Waiting for activation, this may take a while but it never goes until I press dismiss then it just says No Service.
Under the carrier menu the only provider listed is Orange but under the phone menu in settings the last box does say o2!
Can anyone help? Ive tried googling, restoring the iphone, uninstalling and re-installing itunes. Does anyone know what the problem could be or better still anyone know of a solution?

I tried to update some of my apps through the app store on my iphone and now those apps are just stuck on waiting, none of them are downloading even though they are connected to my wifi which is working fine. I then tried to update the apps through itunes on my computer instead which recognises the apps need updating but when I click the button to update them, nothing happens and itunes just stays on the same page. Any help appreciated.

How do I fix this? I message does not work, neither does facetime.
Thanks. I just got the phone yesterday....is this a common problem or is it a fault in the phone I received.
Last night I received the message on my iphone. It was Waiting for activation, This may take some time.
Does anyone know what this is or what to do about it? It is still there this morning.

I tried to download the new Google app. I think it downloaded, but when it was installing, it was taking so long I had to turn off the phone for a while. Now the icon with a progress window is on my iPhone with waiting below it.
Ive tried to delete it through iTunes with no luck. I tried tapping it to remove it like other apps, but it doesnt get an x in the corner to delete it.
I want to reinstall it. How can I do that?

This wkend I tried to download some new apps from appstore. Nothing new, same process as always, but these have never finished downloading to become operational. They are all grayed out and say Waiting... under them. The appstore says they are installed on my phone. I cant delete them either to start fresh. How can I proceed? Any new app I download is doing this now. The rest of the phone features work fine still.

While syncing it says waiting to copy
Rather than attempting to go through a series of time-consuming resets and refreshes to deal with significant errors embedded within the recent 3.1 update, I recommend simply turning off 3G (Settings > General > Network > Enable 3G > OFF) while waiting for Apple to provide a 3.1.1 update. I made this ONE change after observing dropped/missed calls, random shut-downs, and impacted battery life since installing 3.1 and my iPhone has now returned to its former productive state (albeit EDGE). Ive been running normally with consistent phone coverage, no more shut-downs and 2-day battery life once again.
I know it seems ludicrous to turn your iPhone 3G into an iPhone EDGE again temporarily, but it seems that 3.1 introduced some enhancements that corrupted 3G performance causing all of these other issues and they all seem to be related to 3G. Corrupted 3G network algorithms are forcing the iPhone to work much harder than it has to (which impacts battery life, iPhone much hotter to the touch) and degrades/negates 3G network access (dropped/missed calls). Falling back to EDGE seems to alleviate these issues in my experience.
Ive got access to Wi-Fi almost 80% of time so its not an issue for the web browsing or the email performance. And quite frankly, Id rather deal with the slower EDGE performance temporarily when Im out of Wi-Fi range then deal with these other significant issues with calls, shut-downs and battery life.
EDGE seems to be the lesser of two evils (for now). The only question now is ... how long do we have to wait for 3.1.1?
