    I just had to restore my iPhone and when I went to activate it I got the message, iPhone activations are unavailable at this time, please try again later. WTF? I have never seen this before.

    I know this thread is more than two years old, but I'm experiencing the same problem as the OP. I had to restore my iPhone 2G and now when I'm trying to activate it, it says "iPhone activations are unavailable at this time". By the way, it's been saying that for almost a day. AT&T CS rep told me it's an iTunes issue since it's done via iTunes. I didn't even wanna go there.

    But anyway, what else can be done besides waiting for God knows how many days?

    you can try bringing it into an AT&T store and trying their system if they'll let you? Idk if it'd be the same deal or not, but trying won't hurt

    I've read on the Apple forums of this same thing happening off and on for the past two weeks. Some have had to wait a day or two.
