Waiting for activation UK

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.

Apps stuck Waiting

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.

Mail waiting visibility

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 ?

iPhone Application Waiting

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?

App says waiting constantly

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.

Apps stuck on 'Waiting '

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.

Waiting For Activation help needed

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?

iMessage is waiting for activation Please help

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

- 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!

Who else isn't exchanging their iPhone 4 and waiting like me

After reading lots of posts where people were exchanging phone after phone (in some cases 6 or 7 times) without either their camera or antenna issue being resolved, I have decided to hold onto my i4 and wait for a software fix. Hopefully it will be coming. I got mine first day out so tomorrow is my P-Day (phone day) deadline. Did anyone else choose to do this? I hope Im not making a mistake.
