    Hey guys, I had the same issue. I just kept trying it periodically. Low and behold, a message came up saying "iPhone activated" and that was that. It never even showed I got a connection to iTunes.

    If you are desperate I'd just keep trying...

    Looks like mine's done - at last! Still can't get iTunes to recognise my device though. Continue to get can't connect message and no info on my phone in iTunes. At least the phone's updated and working though!

    i dont know if this helped or not, but to anyone not able to connect for the activation, i left my phone plugged into the laptop, and continued to access stuff on ituens while it was trying to hook up with the server. i dont know if it helped or not, but i only took a few tries that way.

    "The iphone "Name's iPhone" cannot be updated at this time because iPhone activation server is temporarily unavailable"
    Yeah, that's the one I'm getting. At least it's doing that BEFORE trying to upgrade the phone.

    Sadly, iPhone Activation Server Is Temporarily Unavailable SoftSailor

    You probably know that the iPhone OS 3.0 was released a few hours ago, and although everything should be OK, its not like that as many users are experiencing problems with updating to the new OS. Users are receiving an error which says that iPhone Activation Server is temporarily unavailable which means that they have to say goodbye to the iPhone OS 3.0 at least for now. We were expecting this as everybody is waiting for the new features so that they have a better iPhone.

    iPhone owners should have received most of these new features a long time ago, however, Apple decided to wait for a while. Well, Im sorry if you didnt update yet due to the fact that the iPhone Activation Server is temporarily unavailable, but these things sadly happens when you dont want them to happen.
