First of all this is a ONE DAY A YEAR thing. It would be stupid of at&t to invest in their servers just for this one day. Why would they when they work great the entire year.
Seriously? Would you blame the Super Bowl if they were unable to get the crowd in in time for kickoff? I mean, it's a one day a year thing.
When you sell a service, people expect you to be able to deliver what you sell. If AT&T knew that they could handle a maximum of 750,000 activations on launch day and knowingly sold 1,000,000 phones, they knew they were screwing their customers. If they didn't know their activation servers' capacity, they're incompetent.
That's why people blame them. Because they are to blame.
