    Exclamation iPhone Hardware Or Software Problem?
    I have an iPhone 3GS 16GB and can't seem to get any signal, it just says "Waiting For Activation", "This May Take A While", well this message has been showing for some days now, I don't know why but I can Connect to the internet through 3G but can't receive or make any messages or phone calls.

    Please Help, I can use both Windows or Mac if this is a software issue.

    Had the same thing on my 3Gs 16GB. I took the sim card out for about 10 minutes and put back in. Every thing works fine now..

    If you have access to AT&T, you should restore your phone to default settings. See if that clears things up.
