One thing I always do (not sure if you're doing it since you didn't mention it) before I activate a device is a Security Wipe (even if I just took it out of the box), then send a PIN message from it (to my device) to ensure the data provisioning has gone thru.

99.9% of the time, doing those 2 steps ensure a successful activation on the first try.
It's always happened pretty much....I haven't been wiping the device right out the box...usually I'll do a wipe if I'm swappin out devices. I'll wipe the old and new device then run...it.

I'll try your suggestion though...thanks..
