Your iPad needs to be connected to WiFi or Cellular data to activate, and if that doesn't work you will need to connect it to your computer and open iTunes to activate it.

Can you try connecting it to your computer and opening iTunes, and let me know what happens. Thank you.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
