FIXED:

I had to call 1 (800) 922-0204

and then say "Activate", confirm my number

After that I turned off phone and back on and it worked.

Nope. I got mine delivered at 3:35EST and I cannot activate it either!

I am getting the same - unable to activate. Tried wifi and cellular and online - no success any of the three ways. "Activation server cannot be reached" Sounds like Verizon crashed or is overloaded.

Worked me too. Automated activation process. My old sim card stopped working as soon as I pressed 1 to activate.

Yeah...I can't call from my new iPhone because it is NOT activated yet. VZW apparently did away with the CS chat feature here...asking for help on FB has been futile as well.

You call from your old phone or another phone. Just find a friend.
