what model of ipad are you using?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
iPad with 32gb I am completely blocked out with just a message "it may take a few minutes to activate your iPad."
A subsequent message "the activation server is temporarily unavailable. Try connecting your iPad to iTunes to activate" I cannot get into the iTunes app

Expert:  Jay D replied 2 months ago.

can you make sure that the ipad is connected to your wifi, if it's not connected then i can't contact the activation server... either that or there is a temporary problem at apple's side.

Thanks. Actually last night my lovely spouse somehow got it working. I was connected to wi-fi so most likely an apple glitch
