Hello I live in Mexico City and I've got an unblocked iPhone (4S) from the online store last year. Now that I tried to upgrade it to IOS7 I can not finish the procedure because now it shows an activation error. I've tried it several times and the result is the same. I do not want to mess with third party solutions from the internet (i've found a lot of them), so I need you guys to help me to solve this problem, it might be an issue of the ipsw file that matches my factory unblocked device, could it be? Please reply at your earliest convenience since I have no working phone now... thanks
I imagine a ton of people are attempting to activate after the update, and the server is getting overloaded. Simple patience, maybe keep trying, and if possible, try a little later. Think of it as all those people lining up at Apple Stores + about a million more.
Thank you guy!
Yes... at first I thought about a lot of people trying to do the same as me, but believe me I've tried it for about 3 hours. I'll try it again later tonight. So if everything went good on the intalation and the problem is ACTIVATING the line shouldn't I be worried of something messed inside to the motherboard where the codes of each carrier are stored? Remember my device is FACTORY UNBLOCKED, I travel a lot overseas and use it very often changing SIM cards like underwear.
I appreciate your reply.
Done! thanks... it was a matter of time & patience.
