SOLUTION: Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR - “Phone is Activated” message may not display



Some users may not see the "Phone is Activated" pop-up message after walking through the Out-of-Box-Experience/set-up. The activation may happen prior to set-up being completed and the "Phone is Activated" message can pop up behind the set-up screens.



To verify activation, users can look for the LTE indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, pull down the control panel and look for Sprint in the upper left, or users can simply attempt a phone call to confirm activation.


Sprint and Apple are aware of this issue and working to resolve.
