Waiting for Activation/Phone is Disabled Message
I pretty much turned my old iPhone 3 into an iPod that has Wifi internet access and gave it to my daughter to use last year. I think she lost her charger or something else happened. You never know what a 13 year old! Anyway, I gave her another charger and then she showed me her phone. The first window says - Waiting for Activation. This may take some time. Then there is a cancel button under it but I can't access that with the first message on it. Then there is a big red message up top that says iPhone is disabled - connect to iTunes.
My first concern is connecting to iTunes. I don't want to do that then have it sync with my current account and get all of my info. Two, it seems like I need to get through these screens before I can start to make anything happen.
What do you guys suggest?
Thanks!iPhone 5 (32GB), iPad 4 (32GB), Apple TV, 2.3 GHz i7 Mac Mini - 16 MB RAM!
Apple... it's not just a brand... it's a lifestyle!
