iPhone 7 Activation nightmare

8 Hours ago I received 1 iPhone 7 Plus & 2 iPhone 7's.  I will refer to them as $800 paper weights.  I am STILL trying to get them activated with no luck.  I have called every number, many restarts many hours already wasted on something that should take less than 10 min. This is outrageous. Please I beg of you just turn on the phone why is all this inconvenience necessar?  Just turn on the phone please! Why is there no fix? I have activated via phone, website, customer service & Billy down the street yet the phone is nothing more than an iTouch at this point. No calls can be made, what is the fix how can I make calls?

Re: iPhone 7 Activation nightmare

Just called to cancel service and they knew how much i owed, last known location i used phone and IMEI/ICCID numbers so they could shut off phones immediately.  Since I had their attention I asked them if they could use that same power to ACTIVATE phones that I ordered.........NOPE
