Although Apple is spreading out the arrival of iPhone 4 pre-orders over three days, the influx of new handsets appears to already be causing some problems with iTunes and AT&T’s activation servers. One iLounge editor had repeated trouble attempting to activate his iPhone, with the activation going through on the seventh try, and only after a restart of iTunes; repeated “timeout” messages were seemingly resolved by the restart. However, two other phones were received and activated without issue. It is unclear whether these problems are related to AT&T’s activation servers, a glitch in iTunes, or something else, and whether they will persist or quickly dissipate ahead of tomorrow’s official launch.
