Upgrade to iPhone 8📱:Pay only $8 a month
  1. Iosnation's Avatar
    Hey guys. I'm an owner of an iPad 4, it doesn't have any SIM card in it, because there is no slot for one. I've successfully installed iOS 7 Beta 4 on it, but now i need a Developer Account, and i don't have one. HELP ME! I'm stuck with the activation screen. I know, I had to restore it before installing the iOS 7, but forgot it and now the iTunes doesn't recognize my iPad. Does that mean the iPad won't work anymore? Or can i restore my iPad by downgrading iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3?

    Just so the thread title doesn't confuse anyone or the OP: the OP's issue is different than the issue
    of not being able to get past an activation screen because of a lack of a sim card (primarily the case
    on iPhones, not iPads). It's simply the fact that the OP installed beta software without having the UDID
    of the device registered under a developer account. Plain and simple.

    It's not really right. I saw videos on youtube and i found how to skip activation screen on iPhone 4/4S/5 with sim cards. You can call Voicemail then quit, and then you'll skip the activation screen. I can't do the same on my iPad and I need help.

    An iPad doesn't have an activation screen because there isn't a sim card installed. That can only
    happen on iPhones. Your issue is simply the fact that you can't get past an activation screen be-
    cause you installed beta software for a device that doesn't have its UDID registered. You said
    yourself that your iPad doesn't even have a sim card slot.

    When you get back to iOS 6, upon getting an UDID you have to follow similar directions of restoring with iOS 7 but instead use the Update option. By Updating to iOS 7 beat as opposed to restoring to it, there will not be a screen for activation. My iPhone 5 is registered as a developer's device and I get the same issue, same goes for my iPad mini.
