Hello - I would like to assist you with this issue today.
Why are you not connecting the iPhone to itunes to activate it?
Are you getting my messages?
No worries - I will try to get this issue resolved for you.
I need to understand the scenario a bit more in detail.
So you have the HTC Phone (which has got the internet) and you are trying to connect the iPhone to HTC's wifi, correct?
Who is it with?
Ok - is it brand new out of the box?
Do you have the sim inserted?
What is it asking you to do on the iPhone screen now?
is it possible to take a picture of the screen and post it here?
How are you online from a mobile?
Can you search for network on your iPhone - Does it gives you any option to search for available networks?
Turn it off and turn it on
Then tell me what do you see first?
Begin by turning on your iPhone by holding down the sleep/power button in the top right corner.
Swipe the slider to the right to begin iPhone activation.
Are you there?
1. Charge your device if needed
2. Contact AT&T at 1-800-331-0500 or 611 from a different wireless device. At the prompt, enter the wireless number that you used to place your iPhone order.
3. At the next prompt, choose option #2 to activate your phone on a different mobile number, and an AT&T representative will help you from there.
4. After speaking with an AT&T representative, turn on your iPhone, follow the on screen instructions and choose a Wi-Fi network.
