Even more infuriation was felt by those EDGE iPhone 2.0 updaters who essentially killed their phones for the better half of the day when prompted to update by iTunes to iPhone 2.0. The software update happens but Apple needs to re-activate your iPhone. Instead of activations, iTunes was spitting out errors.
It looks like the high activation rate from the 3G iPhones plus all of the old iPhones being updated created the perfect storm to kill the activation servers.
Anger was felt. Words were spoken, things were said. Fanboys got upset like if you told them their should be a right mouse click utton on a MacBook.
But noweveryone has a working iPhone again. And things appear to be happy in Appleland.
Oh, BTW, just about every AT&T store is out of iPhones and most Apple stores are running out as well. Here in New York lines have been blocks long all day. We think Apple might have sold a lot of iPhones.
We’ll check back in tomorrow.
