Couldn't make the call to finish activation process and now phone won't activate.

Miembro

I have an iPhone 4s and while I'm away in Ireland I have tried activating my phone through the verizon website. I made it as far the last step where it said to make a call to *### (* followed by 3 digits). I could not complete this step as I have no cell service here in Ireland. I now am trying to use iMessage and I just keep getting the message "waiting for activation..." I have tried countless ways to activate my device, including resetting it through iTunes twice, resetting my network, turning the phone off and on, signing in and out of my Apple ID, as well as other techniques and nothing is working. Is there anything I can do to complete the activation service or is it just taking my phone a while to finish activating? Any advice/knowledge on this topic would be appreciated. ¡Gracias!

The Verizon data stream is required to activate and your are now outside there North American Network System. You could try calling there Global Network service number, but your best move would be to purchase a low cost phone from a local phone store.

Out side USA call,

After the tone, enter your Verizon Wireless calling card number and PIN. 3. After the tone enter 0-908-559-4899. 4. The Verizon Wireless Global Roaming Hotline will then prompt you to enter your 10-digit mobile number.       

  USA only,  Customers may call (800) 711-8300 to speak to a Global Services Activation Specialist

IIf the 4s is unlocked you can use it with a local SIM card cheaper than Verizon roaming.

since Verizon is unlocking all phones now, yours may be ready to use.  Test with a local sim...
