iPhone 3G S customers who’ve had serious issues activating their new iPhones appear to be getting an email from Apple apologizing.  The apology comes in the way of a $30 iTunes gift certificate.

Dear Apple Customer,
Thank you for your recent Apple Store order. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the inconvenience caused by the delay in your iPhone activation.
We are still resolving the issue that was encountered while activating your iPhone with AT&T. Unfortunately, due to system issues and continued high activation volumes, this could take us up to an additional 48 hours to complete.
On Monday, you’ll receive an email from Apple with an iTunes Store credit in the amount of $30. We hope you will enjoy this gift and accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience this delay has caused.
Thank you for choosing Apple.
Apple Online Store Team

Classy.  But since this appears to be AT&T’s fault, why aren’t they giving out free minutes or long distance or free texting or something?
