Early release iPhone 4 activation problems

Recipients of early iPhone 4 units aren't able to activate the devices -- yet.

Don't get jealous of the folks that are receiving their iPhone 4's a full two-days early just yet -- they're not able to activate their new toys.

Despite a report from a MacRumors forums poster that his early iPhone 4 was able to be activated:

FedEx just dropped off my iPhone 4 just a few moments ago... Activation was snappy and smooth.

...it appears that either Apple or AT&T has closed that loophole and iPhone activations now appear to be suspended.
