It seems everyone has forgotten that in the past with the 7510,7520,and 7100i, they all took time to provision the email and web. This handset is really no different. I have activated a few so far and they all have provisioned within an hour, which is actually faster than the older handsets.
Make sure you are on the right rate plan for this handset, because if not, it will cause the handset to provision alot slower. The newer plans with data included are the best route to go, because BB email and web are already included.
