I've just restored my iphone 3GS to it's factory settings, on a different laptop. Now it's saying 'Your iphone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable. Try conecting your Iphone to itunes to activate it, or try again in a few minutes'


Which I have done.


Now on itune its saying 'There is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to active. Please disconnect & insert sim.'


The sim card is inserted & it still will not connect.


The phone has previously been unlocked.


What do I do?





iPhone 3GS
