I had to restore my iPhone 4s and when I went to activate it I get the following message: "Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable.  Try connecting your iPhone to iTunes to active it or try again in a couple of minutes."  I have been trying for 4 days to active it and I get the same message each time.  I took it to my cellular carrier and they said that I have to work with Apple for assistance.  I called Apple Support and they want me to pay them $19 to help me.  Can someone please help me? I don't feel I should have to pay $19 when this is not my fault. I read past threads on this and some say that this happens if your phone has been jailbroken.  I bought this phone directly from Apple and have NEVER jailbroke it.  I am very careful with my devices.  Any help would greatly be appreciated!

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1
