How to get iMessage to work when all it says is waiting for activation
I contacted Orange UK and they said that this iPhone4 is ready to be unlocked, but they can't unlock the phone because I am not the original contract owner. Why can't Apple unlock this phone, because the original owner doesn't care and has sold it? As far as I understand, I am one of at least 3 owners for this phone. I guess there could be more. I just wanted to have a normal iPhone, why can't Apple help on this issue? I have previously had many apple products, this is the first one I bought used adn just wanted to restore it to normal. Another thing is that 3rd party services can unlock it for 200$. What is that they do to unlock it? Why can't apple make a small comission for unlcoking iPhones instead. People find ways to cheat and ripoff people who doesn't deserve to pay extra for the phone they bought.

I went to backup phone on desktop. Got message that I needed to update. Back-up first. After backup, went to update system. As it was in process of updating, said there was an error and would have to restore. Phone showed image of usb connected to phone. Only alternative seemed to be to restore. Followed directions to restore, then started reactivation process. got as far as third step and then got error message athat " Your iPhone could not be actiated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable. Try connecting your iPhone to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple of minutes." I did try to connect with itunes but get an error message there as well. "Your request couldn't be processed. We are sorry but there was an error processing your request. Please try again later." This has been going on for over an hour. How do I get the phone reactivated and restored to its programs?
I NEED HELP FOR WORKING MY IPHONE
Hello, I have received an iPhone 4 from a friend who has recently upgraded, he is on vodafone and I am on Giffgaff both in the UK. He has been in touch and been granted a factory unlock from his network for me, although when he originally retired the handset he did a full "as new" restore through iTunes. I cannot activate the phone with my sim as it's not the original carrier but therefore also cannot get beyond the activation of the handset in order to "apply" the factory unlock through iTunes. Is there anyway around this problem or will I have to borrow/acquire a Vodafone sim to firstly activate and then update through iTunes? Or am I getting the wrong end of the stick altogether? Help much appreciated!
How do I fix this? I message does not work, neither does facetime.Thanks. I just got the phone yesterday....is this a common problem or is it a fault in the phone I received.
i updated my iphone 4 when i tried to connect to the itunes it said (We're sorry, we are unable to continue with your activation at this time.) please help..
i got a replacement iphone 5 from apple due to orignal iphone 5 was faulty. i tried to get it unlocked by 02 but they said its not from 02 so the can't unlock it. But they said that the phone should be unlocked if you got it from apple, they can't unlock it for me due to it not coming from 02. i have tried putting my 3 sim in it says that activation required. should i go back to apple to get it activate it so i can use other sim card.
how can i activate my phone to work with a carrier here?
There are four possible causes of the activation error: The activation server is unavailable. Rare, but it happens. Usually fixed within minutes. Your antivirus or firewall (or your router's firewall) is blocking access to the domain gs.apple.com on ports 80 and 443. Your phone is jailbroken. Your phone isn't jailbroken, but the computer you are connected to during the restore or update was used to hack or jailbreak some other iOS device, and its network database was corrupted in the process. Perhaps this will provide you some clues as to how to proceed. If your iPhone has not been jailbroken, Apple has some troubleshooting suggestions here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3424?viewlocale=en_US If your iPhone has been jailbroken, you're on your own. We can provide no assistance for jailbroken devices in these forums. Regards. (part of the above information quoted with gratitude from Lawrence Finch)
After update I was getting manny issues like 1611 error, restored to factory settings, now I am not able to bypass activation screen. Phone is locked to ATT,never been unlocked, I cant find my ATT card, is there any way to activate it without using ATT sim ?
I have an iphone 4s boxed, brandnew and unopened for a year not until March 2013, for a couple of days i have used it, worked excellent but after i have unlocked it through at&t and updated it to IOS 6.1.3 it went to re-activation mode again. Tried several times to activate it but no succeess. I went to an apple store to discuss the problem of the update and consequently the result it brought to my iphone4s but denied a replacement because it was passed the warranty period. I was offered a replacement (for a fee) of $200 but i refused since i believe i havent enjoyed the iphone for years, has not even dropped, water-damaged nor scratched. The manager on duty (Mary, Fairview Mall, Ontario) insisted that my iphone 4s has a growing software problem already and i just dont know of... I reiterated to her that the unit was working as brandnew just like many of my apple products i have. I havent called the apple support telephone support though. What should i do now? Please help guys. I cannot take it paying another $200 for an iphone that was practically brandnew and went useless after the update. I have a record of the at&t authorized unlocking request. Should i escalate the appeal to where? Please help.. Thanks a lot guys.
I did a reset on iTunes, which went OK, but now it won't activate and I can't get past the activation screen on my phone. Please help! iPhone 4s, btw.

my iphone stuck in activation screen , and i lost the sofbank simcard.what must i do?
Was this iPhone hacked/jailbroken to unlock it?
Voice control is really annoying. I really wish I could turn it off. But I can't. Supposedly I can turn off some of the things voice control does (with limited success) but I can't disable it completely even though I really want to. Really. And a lot of other people want to, too, if the forums are anything to go by. Problems include:- Accidental activation (yes, triple click home is turned off, and yes I have a passcode)- Accidental calling people. The last time this happened I was asleep and I must have accidentally leant on my phone. Somehow it interpreted my breathing as "Facetime (friend's name)". That person lives in another country. It was the middle of the night. Could apple please reinburse me for this ridiculous nighttime overseas call? I also discovered that disabling voice calling with the passcode option doesn't disable facetime. Why not?- Accidentally playing music. This is really awkward especially in quiet serious places when your pocket or handbag starts to sing. There is NO WAY to stop this happening. My phone is on silent!! Still, voice control makes the beep beep noise and plays music when some accidental pressure touches the button. Last time was during a work meeting. If I get fired because of apple...- It hears things I don't say, and doesn't understand what I do say. To the best of my knowledge, I don't say "Facetime (complicated Indian name)" in my sleep. Seriously. But "Next song" should be simple enough! ATTENTION APPLE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS!! Please make an "off" option!! Surely it is a simple thing that will make millions happy. There are a LOT of discussions on the Support Communities about this. Please do something about it. There is a very simple solution, whereby people can choose if Voice Control is something they want to use or not. Please. Pretty please with sugar on top.
I got an iphone 4 from a relative from another country and when I try to activate it with an AT&T and T-Mobile sim, it would say SIM Not Valid. Aslo the IMEI shows on the activation screen but ICCID is unknown. Does anyone know how I can find out what carrier it is? Or how I can get it factory unlocked to use for T-Mobile.
sir my phone was activation required so how i wl activate
I have an Iphone 4 with ios 5.1.1. About a month ago, my iphone suffered water damage.I turned it off and nursed it back to health using the dry rice method. 2 days later I switched on my phone and it seemed like my Iphone returned to normal.3 days ago I turned my phone off for what i'm pretty sure was the first time since I recovered it from the water damage. Iphone won't turn on without being connected to power, although it says it's on 100% battery when it does turn on. It goes to front screen and... you know the drill, activation required message.I'm almost certain it wouldn't have happened had I not turn my phone off. My phone is unusable.I have managed to bring it to DFU mode and have the option to recover if I upgrade to ios 6, however before I do it I want to make sure this is the only necessary step to take. Reason being I enjoy using ios 5 and don't want to change it. any ideas on how to rescue my iphone without upgrading the operating system? I'll appreciate your help!

PLEASE HELP. I'm trying to use my old iphone 4s as an ipod touch because i upgraded to an iphone 5.
Hello. I am trying to unlock a phone for someone using their new Simple Mobile carrier. I read online that Simple Mobile uses Tmobile towers, so the iphone can work if it is unlocked. I have also unlocked my own iphone for tmobile, so I know this is true. The Iphone is unlocked, but it keeps forcing me to activate it when I put in the new sim card.When I try to activate it, it says that the simcard is not supported.when I insert the old at&t sim, it can activate, but the sim is a fake, its not a working card, so I am baffled. Once its "activated" with the old sim, I try to switch them, but it will always force the activation screen on me when I use the simple mobile card. -I have tried restoring the iphone-I have tried hard restarting the iphone. I did this before on my 4 on tmobile with no problems.So Im just doing the same thing I did then. Does anyone know how or have any tips for activating the iphone using an unsupported sim?
I just want to make clear I did following, I follow all articles regarding error (-1) in apple support.Updated itunes, Turn off windows firewall, Paused my antivirus, Checked host file,itunes diagnostic test,LAN connections, andTried whole process in 2 different Windows 7 pc. Restore process:Before I update to the new iOS 6.1.2, I tried using my wifi connection and it's pretty slow and not able to do it, so I downloaded iOS 6.1.2.After connect my iphone 5 to my pc, I put it on DFU mode by pressing home and power button together and it appears in recovery mode. I already downloaded iOS 6.1.2, so just holding Shift key and Browse iOS 6.1.2 start restoring my iphone 5. But at the very end it shows error (-1) and interrupt and my iphone again shows iTunes logo. Now I can't go out of DFU mode or update to the latest iOS. It's a brand new phone. It just showing itunes logo. Please help me to fix this issue.While I did the Network Connectivity Tests, I found:Secure link to iTunes Store failed. Summary:Windows Firewall is off.Connection attempt to Apple web site was successful.Connection attempt to browsing iTunes Store was successful.Connection attempt to purchasing from iTunes Store was successful.Connection attempt to iPhone activation server was successful.Connection attempt to firmware update server was unsuccessful.The network connection timed out.Connection attempt to Gracenote server was successful. I tried everything but those two error got never fixed.

It is impossible to activate my iphone 5 and the message is that "it is not possible to activate because the activation service is unavailable". How can I solve this problem in order to start using it?
i have a iphone 4, which over time has bent due to its battery heating up like crazy causing the metal bezel to bend over time, the front and back is shattered becouse of this, it didnt really bother to much until last week it kept saying "no sim"?? so i restored it to ios 6.1 from itunes. now its stuck on the activation screen. i called up apple care and they made me do a full restore again while on the phone to them but still no luck stuck on the sim activation. the women from apple care told me i had 2 months warranty left and my iphone had a hardware issue and booked me a appointment with the genius bar. i wanted to know if the iphone being bent will affect my warranty? as it was not my fault????? thanks
How do you fix this??
