In the same message that notified me of my shipment I got my T-Mobile activation info, which I sadly cannot get to work. Others have activated theirs without problem, so I’m not sure what the problem is. I contacted OLPC and immediately got a generic reply but then a few hours later I got this reply –
Thank you for your patience with us in regards to sending out your T-Mobile HotSpot Pin Number. Please allow 3-14 days to receive this code via email.
Still semi-generic, but obviously sent by a human. I did write back to clarify that I did have a code and they’re sending me a new one *just in case they didn’t read the first message and think I didn’t get my code in the first place).
FYI, it looks like the T-Mobile code is your OLPC confirmation code (from the original order confirmation letter) and e-mail address of the order. I can’t swear, since it didn’t actually work but that’s what they said. (This was a link I found earlier and this is the one in the ‘now shipping’ e-mail).
