There might be a hiccup for some users when it comes to activating their new iPhone X devices.

A number of users have reported that the iPhone X isn’t completing the first step of connecting and thus activating through their wireless carrier.

The error message they’ve received has read as follows:

“Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable. Try connecting your iPhone to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple of minutes.”

Late last week, Apple published a support document explaining how OLEd displays function and that it is normal to see some screen burn-in over time and shifts in color when looking at the iPhone display from an off-angle.

The document stated that with extended long-term use, OLED displays can show “slight visual changes,” which is also considered normal. The iPhone X has been engineered to be the “best in industry” at reducing burn-in effects, but Apple’s support document suggests burn-in is still a problem that some users could potentially see over time.
