That depends.  It took my daughter just a few minutes.  I waited for two hours after I attempted activation with AT&T, with no luck.  I called again and it took about two minutes-the CR who helped me said that activation should take about ten minutes.  My old phone deactivated that quickly but my new iPhone 4 still did not work.  I'd wait about half an hour and call AT&T again if it does not activate within that time.  With other phones I have waited an hour or more.  I thought ten minutes is not much time and overly optimistic-but that was all it took for my daughter.  So give it the half hour or so.

Took me only a couple of minutes. I've heard that if it takes a while, turning the phone off and back on may force it to activate.

I picked up my iPhone4 at my local Apple Store tonight and it activated in just a few seconds (much less than a minute) there when the clerk connected it to a Mac.
