I am new here, so please be gentle. I am a 63 yr old retired golf professional and have used my I phone 3g fr 4 yrs with no problems. Last week my daughter convinced me to update it with a new I tunes account so I could download an app for my motorhome. I registered with iTunes and backed the phone up. It updated it and wiped the xxxx thing clean. Its now in factory reset mode and I cant even get it to recognise my sim card or activate.

I took it to the shop and they said that for the past 4 days the activation server has been down. Can I do anything and are these men in the shop ripping me off because I tried to activate it at home via my wifi and I got the same message, server down.
