    It happens with every iOS upgrade... the entire Apple-centric universe is trying to download/install/activate... it just takes time to work through the volume.

    Not helpful but I consider phones to important to mess with on day one. I'm definitely not gonna try it this week. That's why it's nice to have to iPad so I can screw with it right away. I can live without the iPad for awhile if need be. The phone...uh-uh.

    Yeah, if I was smart I would have done that. But I am a developer so why would I want to wait. Plus the wife wants iOS 7 and I need to be able to answer her questions.

    I hear you. I’m in the same boat, except that I work from home. No drive time... and I can manually monitor the paging queue from my laptop, so even if the phone is out of commission, I’m ok.

    And I get the double-edged conundrum - "I shouldn’t because I’m on call" vs "I'm a geek and I have to".

    Mine downloaded the file and wouldnt activate. It stayed on version 6 until I finally got through. It was another 15 minutes after that to install and reboot.

    Yeah. I mean I have my VoIP PBX at home. But shockingly my phone finally activated so I can go workout. Just can't download any apps, and I have none that I normally use.
