I can't activate my iPad Reply Topic

Just bought a new iPad but when I connected to iTune10.0.1.22, I got this message: We are unable to complete your activation at this time. Please disconnect your iPad from your computer and reconnect it later and we should be able to activate it. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes. Ive been trying this for 2 days. Please help?

You do have internet access right? You might want to play with your anti-virus and firewall setting. You say your are from HKSAR. Where is that? Has the iPad been released there?

Hi! Thanks! Yes, did tried to turn off my firewall and anit-virus program but still getting the same message. Im from Hong Kong and yes iPads are officially being sold in here. I called local Apple support but they couldnt help. They said that itd probably my iPad was locked for some reasons but I told them I did nothing...it was brand new, bought at an authorised reseller...Apple said that theyd call me again on Mon...

I retried this morning and the activation was successful. Although Im still not sure what happened, it seemed that Apple did something...unlocked my iPad?! Finally, Im starting to use it now...One thing Im disappointed is that Apple HongKong support promises to call me back today (Mon) to do some follow up but they still havent called.
