    thank you
    Do you have an active SIM card in the phone? The phone won't activate without an active sim card in the phone..

    Yeah. That's all it is. Activation requires an active, in area, SIM card functioning at the time of a restore for the activation to be possible. It's a pain you can't get to use your phone, even as an iPod Touch, until it's activated.

    Good luck!
