Answer:
Answer:

5 possible causes for that error message:


1] Activation server is actually down. Very rare occurrence, and of short duration when it

does happen. Solution - try again.

2] Your firewall and/or antivirus software are preventing the necessary connection. Solution -

temporarily disable your firewall and/or antivirus software until the activation completes.


3] computer being used for activation has been used to jailbreak an iOS device in the past.

Solution - use a different computer.

4] iPad has been jailbroken. Your favorite search engine may provide some direction, but jailbreaks often prevent

activations/updates from succeeding. Per Terms of Use for this forum, discussion of jailbroken iPads is

prohibited.


5] your region and/or timezone settings are inconsistent with your actual location. Solution - set region and/or timezone correctly.

I'm sorry but I never jailbroken my iPad before .

I have this iPad from my Big Brother from last 2 month, running on iOS 10.3.3


I do reset content and setting but it's fine . So I Sign in to my iCloud Then I update this iPad to iOS 11 .

Just for a month, I do reset all content & setting again but stuck on this case .


I Can't use my iPad anymore .


Any solution ?
