    Activation requires a SIM card from a supported carrier or the carrier the device is locked to if it is carrier locked.


    The vast majority of activation issues are the result of a device that is hacked or jailbroken.  If that is the case, no support can be provided here.

    he write me somwthing when i put my card SIM .. Your iphone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarilt unaviable. Try connecting your iphone to itunes to activate ir , or try again in couple of minutes.


    if this problem persist ,contact apple support at apple.com/support

    Generally this is a sign that the iPhone had previously been

    hacked/modified/jailbroken and the update relocked it to the

    original wireless carrier. If this is the case, only that wireless

    carrier can unlock your iPhone. You must contact them to see

    if they offer unlocking and if you qualify.


    Where did you acquire this iPhone?

    What wireless carrier did you use before this problem?


    Does the app Cydia appear on your iPhone?

    What does it say when you look at Settings=>General=>About=>Carrier?


    Unauthorized modification of iOS



    If your iPhone has not been jailbroken, see the troubleshooting suggestions here:
