    Did everything you said to and this came up:
    "Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server cannot be reached. Try connecting your iPhone to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple of minutes."
    I have done a hard re set
    I have tried to connect to iTunes but it keeps saying "there's a problem with the network"
    My wifi is working fine so I don't think that's the issue. But I have tried activating through wifi and LTE and it STILL won't even let me activate my phone. Any help would be VERY APPRECIATED!

    Follow the directions in this post and it should fix it, but you need to ensure your device is registered as part of the developer program or you won't be able to activate it.
    I obviously wasn't smart enough to realize my phone should've been part of a developer program before I started this and now my phone won't activate through wifi, the cellular network, OR iTunes. Any advice??

    The download servers and the activation servers are getting slammed with all of the requests.

    I’ve also seen one report that the activation servers are currently down.

    1. Be patient
    2. Keep trying
    3. Go to 1

    Genius! Pure genius! I don't know what we would do without you guys. It looks like Apple needs more qualified people on their team.

    This worked like a charm on the "official" release of iOS 7, and I'm not a developer. Now that it is released, the Redsn0w tool works perfectly. September 19, 2013
