I had no activation issues. I did notice that the device slowed down drastically when it hit 90% of the activation completion.
The weird thing is that my 7290 exhibited the same issue when connected to the same BES server. I will post an update if I find out more info.
When I get the hanging I find turning the wireless off and on restarts it - quicker than rebooting!
