    Activation?

    So I got my xoom today and haven't activated it yet. I'm just using Wi-Fi for right now.

    When I go into settings and click on activate device... it fails every time. Any tips on how to get this to work?

    Did you pay the activation and set up a data plan already?

    I did.

    Figured it out. I'm on an employee account and there have been so many employee activations/orders that the system was backlogged. Customer care reset it for me and I have my tablet activated now. Woohoo!

    I, too, just got my Xoom. I have a data plan but haven't used the 3G yet. Is there anything that I have to do or just assume that if I can't get Wifi the 3G will become activated on it's own?

    In the settings I believe by default it will go to using 3G data if not turned off. Remember that if you allow background data to run, that when it sleeps it might use up data. I recommend connecting to WiFi as often as possible and power it down overnight or when you won't be using it for long stretches. Or just go to settings and turn off data connection.

    Thanks, Droid-Xer Do you recommend the Juice Defender app? It is supposed to aid in preserving battery usage.

    The battery is quite good on the Xoom with out any help from power conserving apps. I used mine out of the box for over 7 hours on wifi with medium usage. At the time the battery was about 75% full.

    IMO those battery saver apps are sort of redundant. They themselves use battery.

    Yup ditch the "battery savers", anti virus, and task killers/ memory managers. No need for that stuff on any OS 2.2 or higher especially on the Xoom.
