    Default After Activation, Each Time I reboot I get "waiting for at&t activation" message

    hey guys I just activated my iPhone sucessfully, but each time I reboot it I get the message "waiting for at&t activation, this may take a while" and a dismiss button. Although it is something minor, it is a bit annoying.

    I activated it before on windows and didn't have such a problem. But I had to do a restore and now activated it on a Mac using idependance and im getting this message. Anyone got a similar issue?

    You probably activated it, but your sim is not working. So the phone can't connect to the operator and the iphone activation is not complete. If you don't have unlocked your iphone (turbo sim, geohot, ...), you should take the sim of. Because the iphone continuously try to connect to operator and this drain the battery. If you have unlocked and have the problem, I have no idea. Didn't use independance.

    Thanks for the reply. The thing is, I have done the activation before on windows (using the point&click youtube activation combo program) and I didn't get this message.

    I would like to add though that the windows activation was done using 1.0 firmware, while the Mac one was done using 1.02 firmware. Do you think something has changed that results in such an a message? Is anyone else getting this message on 1.0.2 after activation using independance?

    I suppose it depends how the activation has been done. Don't know the process used by Windows apps. But do you have a working sim in the iphone or not? Because before doing the geohot unlocked, I had the att sim in. I had the same message. And once I removed the sim from the iPhone, as it was not trying to activate, the battery last 3 times longer.

    No. I don't have a working SIM. Just the SIM card that came with the iPhone is still in there.

    So don't leave it in the phone. It just makes the iPhone try to connect continuously and it drains battery. Just try. You'll see that the iPhone will run much longer without sim in.

    Ok. The question is when the software unlock is released will I still get this message? I mean this is an activation related error, it has nothing to do with the network, no?

    EDIT: actually by removing the SIM card, each time I reboot I will get the "No SIM Card Installed" message.

    Once you have a valid sim in the phone, it can connect to the network and the iPhone says Activated after a few seconds. That's what happened after doing geohot hack.
