Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem .
You`re not the only one believe me , this seems to be a nationwide phenomenon since a couple of days .
You will need to get your password ***** at apple .
I will give you a link that will help ;
Here is another one for your ID if necessary ;
If you still cannot activate your iphone then take a look here ;
You can also see the first 2 links at the 3rd I gave you so you can start there as well .
Let me know how that goes
Got something on that Joan?
