Hi ,


I am using iphone 3gs and have unlocked it officially from apple. Now when I tried to upgarde to ios6.1 I was able to download the ios software on my iphone successfully, but when it started installing the ios on my iphone it restarted my iphone and now it says " We are unable to countinue, we cannot activate the iphone at this time. The activtation server is currently down please try after sometime or you can also activate it by connecting to iTunes." .


Please anyone can help in either resolving this issue or restoring it back to my original ios5.1.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1

    This generally is a sign that the iPhone had previously been jailbroken

    or hacked to unlock it from the original wireless provider and the update

    has relocked it to that carrier. You must contact the wireless provider it

    is locked to and ask if they offer unlocking and if you qualify.


    Exactly how did you get Apple to unlock your 3gs? Only wireless carriers

    unlock iPhones; Apple does not do so.
