    You are THE MAN!! so simple and great solution. I would only add that from the main screen in redsn0w, hit Extras, then Even More and then Deactivate. The Apple logo will show up in the phone, do not panic and then you will be asked immediately (if you have a network connection) to enter the email which was previously used in that iphone to activate it (which in my case, was the same as the apple ID used in the iTunes store). Enter it, it goes and does something, and voila!! you are all set.

    Hi everyone,

    What if I can't even install the redsnow program, because "it is from an unidentified developer"?
    Thanks

    Hi.

    I've had the same problem on my 3rd gen Ipad running ios 6.1.2 for a few week now i.e. push notification message, can't log into iMessage & FaceTime, also Find my iPhone doesn't find my Ipad even though location services are on.

    I have no idea why this has happened and have never upgraded to ios 7.

    I am not a developer & I do not use iCloud for backups

    I activated my Ipad via ITunes when I first bought it a couple of years ago and am fairy sure that I have activated it whenever I upgraded the ios to a newer versions of IOS.

    Looking through this thread it appears that the redsnow fix would resolve the issue for me as you no longer need to be a developer on ios 7 for it to work and after applying the fix I should be able to connect my ipad to iTunes and activate it.

    However I'm still nervous about doing this after comments from several members that they were not able to re-activate using iTunes.

    Taking all of the above into account, would really appreciate it if anyone can confirm that the redsnow fix should work for me and that I will be able to re-activate my device using ITunes.

    Hey Mark,

    The fix should work for you just fine. Enjoy!

    Thanks ixxd_com. I downloaded redsnow using the link and tried to follow the instructions but the Deactivate button does not appear under Extras, Even More (not even greyed out). I noticed in the redsnow readme.txt that it lists Ipad 1 & 2 so I assume this functionality is not compatibility with an ipad 3. Will see if I can find another way to deactivate.

    I hope you found another way already. If not, I would suggest to try different versions of RedSn0w.

    quick question, so you are saying i have to restore my phone? i restored it not so long ago and i have no sim card to go past the activation screen, so i bypassed it ( it was fustrating ) and i wouldnt wanna have to restore it again and have to bypass the activation lock all ocer again , any other resolution? ( and i tried the first step already ) all im asking is if i would have to restore it.
