Why can't I update my Verizon iPhone 4 after updating to iOS7 update? (can't get to homescreen)
I have an old verizon iPhone 4, that I wanted to do a factory reset to use only for non-phone use. iTunes upgraded it to iOS7. Now unable to get past activation process. I have tried OTA, and iTunes on several machines and on two different networks. this has been going on for several days.
It prompts me for Language, Country, Wifi/iTunes.. then gets error message and go back to beginning. How do I get past these messages?
Wifi: Your iPhone could not be activated because of activation server is temporary unavailable...
iTunes: Your request could not be processed. We're sorry. but there is an error processing your request
It was a verizon based phone purchased directly from apple. (not sure if that has anything to do with it). also, it has been off verizon's network since April 2014.
