can’t restore without activations…

Well that’s just stupid. You can’t restore the iPhone back to a working setup without the AT&T activation system working – and I didn’t learn that it was down until AFTER I’d done the restore. Now I’ve got to wait with a non-functioning phone until tomorrow around Noon (3pm EST) for the AT&T crew to get their shit back working again.

To be fair, it makes sense that you’d need to activate the phone again from a fresh restore – but it’s damned annoying that they didn’t even warn me and now my phone is completely out. Damnit.

Update:

With the activation system back online, the restore process works faultlessly. Unfortunately, I’ve also come to rely on that phone for a lot more – amazing how fast that happens – and missed a few rather important points over the past 12 hours. Ouch. My fault, obviously, for missing on my own calendar – but damn that sucks.

  1. Sorry to hear it. If it makes you feel any better, I’m seeing one of the Mail engineers tomorrow morning and I can whine to him about the message stuck in your outbox.🙂

  2. Heh, that’d be cool. I’d like to just be able to nuke the message – or get it back into Drafts or something if it didn’t send properly. Ah well – at least the system is due to be back active today at Noon, and I’ll have a phone again then.
