Good morning hillwood24,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!

I understand you are getting an error message relating to accessing a server for activation for your iPad 2. Since you have cellular enabled on this device, try removing the SIM card to allow the activation to complete. Also, check your region and timezone settings to make sure they are set correctly. The resource below provides some additional troubleshooting steps for this issue. This would apply to an iPad with cellular capabilities as well.
If you can't activate your iPhone
Take care.
