My iphone 4s cannot activate after updating to ios7. I have tried on iTunes and on phone.
You mean that the installation is complete and the phone won't power on at all? That's disconcerting as I'm in the middle of the installation now.
what kind of advice is this?
do not listen to him... I'm having same issues here, I cannot activate my iPhone after a restore.
I didn't offer any advice. I'm already running the installation so I'm hoping I don't have this problem. If anything I was asking him to clarify what he's experiencing. No idea what you thought I meant.
Its updated to iOS7 and then when your setting up the phone it says to activate your phone then after about 30secs says cannot activate.
Same Issue on a iPhone 4. Won't activate and won't connect to the iTunes store.
Says: Activating your iPhone
It may take a few minutes to activate your iPhone
then after 30 seconds to a minute:
Could not activate iPhone
Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server cannot be reached. Try connecting your iPhone to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple minutes.
If this problem persists, contact Apple Support at apple.com/support
About 30 minutes of trying and getting the same message.
I see. Probably a server issue. They're swamped.
Can't activate here either. Agh.
Ok, I see i'm not alone. Good.
Give it some time, numerous people having the same problem.
this is ridiculous!! i need to use my phone
I don't get the macrumors agenda, they post "activation server down" on random days when it occurs but when a major release breaks apple activation server they don't even mention it. I literally restored because I did not see the error posted on the newspage, I thought gee apple sorted that out with their billions...guess I was wrong.
iPhone 4S here, been trying for an hour, no luck...
still cant activate 4s here, this is getting frustrating
You just have to keep trying, there is nothing else you can do. Yes it can be very frustrating. Call and/or email Apple support about it the odds are slim that they will fix the present issue but maybe they'll be better prepared by the time the next big update/release comes around. This is an ongoing/reoccurring problem.
turn your phone off , connect to a proxy or vpn from your pc , connect your phone to pc , use iTunes to activate , it may work
I think he may have figured it out since the last time this was bumped 5 months ago
