AT&T Inc said on Monday delays in activating service for
customers of Apple iPhone had been mostly resolved.
About 2 percent of those who bought iPhones since they went
on sale Friday faced delays in activation with AT&T, the
exclusive U.S. service provider for the widely anticipated
cell phone, according Reuters reports, citing sources
familiar with the matter.
By Monday, those issues were mostly resolved, AT&T spokesman
Mark Siegel said.
"We have resolved nearly all of the issues and we feel
confident this is behind us now," Siegel said. "One by one,
we worked to resolve (the problems) and now nearly all of
them have been resolved."
Activation delays stemmed from large customer volumes and
problems with customers trying to transfer corporate cell
phone accounts to personal iPhone service accounts, AT&T
said on Sunday.
AT&T said that iPhone sales for the weekend were the
strongest of any device in the company's history.
