iPhone 3G

Apple Inc launched the most anticipated mobile phone this year: the new iPhone. This in turn proved to be a meltdown at the information-technology held on Friday morning.

Many customers present at this gathering were unable or had problems getting their iPhones working.

According to what some people reported : they spent somewhere between one to two hours on the phone with Apple and AT&T Inc. This entire time trying to get a new iPhone to work would require bypassing some activation problems.

You might know that the iPhone 3G phone has a relatively low price comparing to its predecessor iPhone. It has many new features but Apple decided to cut down prices in order to achieve an even higher goal. They expect now higher figures regarding the iPhone reach.

In stores there was a big commotion about this, people waited at many desk counters to get the new iPhones activated. There were huge lines.

Regarding the reported problem:

A spokesman for AT&T, the exclusive carrier for the iPhone in the U.S., said there was a global problem with Apple’s iTunes servers that prevented the phones from being fully activated in-store, as had been planned.
