    I tried out the iOS 7 beta then I decided to downgrade back to 6.1.3. I put the phone into DFU mode then restored the software and everything worked fine. I get the setup screen to select language but when I go to activate I get "your iphone cannot be activated because the activation servers are temporarily unavailable". When I try to activate it by connecting iTunes i get "your request could not be processed" in iTunes. Now im just stuck with a bricked phone pretty much. Any suggestions? This is an iPhone 4S on Sprint.

    I tried that too. I get those same activation errors with iOS 7 now.

    I had the same problem with iTunes activation, but Wi-Fi activation worked without any hitch.
