Unable to activate new (to me) 4S with Straight Talk, T-Mobile or old AT&T SIM

Posted February 16, 2013 at 3:38pm by tjlmbklr · 1770 views
I just bought a 32GB 4S from Ebay. I currently use straight talk on my 4 and was thinking it would be a simple SIM swap and be done. I keep getting [I][B]"iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable."[/B][/I]. I even tried my old AT&T SIM and a working T-Mobile SIM. They all do the same thing. I have also restored 4 times, 3 of which using DFU mode. I have called AT$T and they have verified the phone is not blacklisted and that is should be unlocked. Any ideas. I have an appointment today at the Apple store but am hoping to save a trip. Thanks.
