Not Activating.

I went to restore my phone and everything was going smoothly up until it came to the reactivation portion of the process..... My phone will not Activate so I cannot call Verizon and I do not have another phone.

Help?

Don't you have to plug it back into iTunes again or wifi? If you can skip so you can get to the dial pad and do *228 option 1. Use another phone to call if you can. If not working go to a store.

try this:

Go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings.

the phone will power cycle and should automatically start activation on its own. that doesn't erase your content from the device, it only resets the cellular portion(and the wifi passwords..)
