    When I received mine last week, it did not activate, at least not during the first 5 minutes. I did a factory reset and it activated right away after reboot.

    I've been waiting almost three hours now. I'm also not able to access the internet on 3G.

    I got mine back last Friday and it activated on the local 4G in about a minute. Been blazing fast ever since. No problems. Switches from 4G to 3G when I go outside the service, and back and forth to wi-fi when signal is available. Never a glitch.

    You sent your off about the same time I did. They must have really got bogged down toward the end of last week. Hope you get it today. Where do you have to go to find 4G service, Odessa? Austin??

    Odessa is closest.

    4G activation was about 90 seconds. Probably faster if I wasn't down in a poor reception basement at the time I did it.

    Been there. In my younger days with Motorola I went to every police, sherriffs, state patrol, border patrol office in the southwest setting up trunked and non-trunked radio systems and to all of the repeater sites in the middle of nowhere. Did Midland, Odessa, Abilene, and those are just the big ones. Did Artesia and FLETC near there in NM too.
    Good times!

    I just got back my Xoom with a dock, but it just says no Internet. I haven't been asked to switch. I don't get 3G either. Just nothing.
