iPhone 4 iOS 5.1.1 will NOT activate(No Signal)
verizoniphone1632

Hello, about two months ago, I got a replacement iPhone 4 that is now glitching up so I decided to restore it. However, the phone is saying it has "No Service" and even went to the activation screen to ask for my account info to setup the phone as if it had never been activated. However, the phone is activated and I am told that activation failed when putting in my information. It's as if the phone doesn't know it belongs to Verizon because Network and Carrier are all N/A(however the activation screen did say Verizon). Does anyone have a fix for this issue I tried to reactivate the phone via My Verizon but it tells me that I need to try my request later.

Fixed my own problem! Just press home, press emegency, dial 112, hold down power, press cancel when slide to power comes up, tap the green tap to return call, press end call, press home button, lock screen and then complete setup after a few minutes(mine still said no service) then restart and it may say activation failed just press retry and it should show bars(maybe no verizon) and a few minutes later it should say it activated.
