    So I was in the gym and all of a sudden my phone restarted. I'm assuming it's because my development profile expired. I renewed it in the provisioning portal and am now attempting to return the phone to its original condition. It was running beta 5 and I figure I should just update it to the newest one. I'm currently getting the set-up screens stating "connect to iTunes or set up your phone over WiFi and cannot get past these screens.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? What I can do?

    You need to activate the phone. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    It's saying I can't activate it because the activation server is temporarily unavailable. Try again in a few minutes. I'm not entirely sure it will ever work because this process that I'm going through right now seems like its the process undergone when opening the new iPhone 5, so of course the activation server would be unavailable.

    God this sucks. Any other thoughts/help?
