It took nearly two hours for my phone to activate, and I can only imagine the waits must be even longer for folks who showed up later in the day. I can report that, in Dallas at least, the 4G network seems to be undergoing substantial strain. There have been some long, wonky periods of lag that may be connected to Sprint's under-prepared servers.
