comment Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable
I don't have the dev problem, and it was an iPad, but after following these and many, many other support pages and Discussion suggestions, including fooling with hosts file ...the step that immediately worked was: Use a different computer. Went right through.

comment Upgraded to iOS 7 “Could not activate phone”
This is exactly the sort of thing that baffles reps at all levels ... so you scour the web and read and read and finally some guy says, Use a different computer. Mess with hosts file? All sorts of tweaks like that. I'm just saying, try another, it simply worked!

You can do this, but doesn't stick. Not at all.

comment Does AirDrop use up Bandwidth?
Sorry, I meant prudent in that said files are uploaded and downloaded, so file size and bandwidth are certainly a factor.

comment How do I diagnose non-operational external USB3 hard disk drives?
And does this disk show up in Disk Utilities? I have to say, I've had this happen from one different MBPro to the next; some portables like a USB to mini USB ... have no answers yet except treasure the combo of disk and cable that works.

comment Cannot connect to Wi-Fi (The Wi-Fi network “network name” requires a WPA2 password)
Just a note that several times now, people have been subsequently able to connect to my WPA-secure wireless network after I opened the Guest Network, no password. Hell if I know why, but it worked.

comment 2011 Macbook Pro - GPU dying?
The same as my reasoning for buying it. Expensive to fix, and laptops get thrown arond alot. Old days, for a Powerbook I didn't. Lot of independents who would repair. I wouldn't buy a Porsche without some kind of warranty, either.

comment I keep getting a weird email address trying to facetime me on my iphone5? is this spam?
No harm, ever, in changing your Apple ID password. I'd do it in this case, or anything doubtful / suspicious - and have.

comment No Wifi Connection on Macbook Air
Sometimes opening the Guest Network, with no password, works in that subsequently, the machine can connect normally.

comment Folder disappears after dragging it into “All My Files” in Finder
Why would Spotlight be the best place to start, when it needs all sorts of tweaking--and non-intuitive ones--to even begin? And "doesn't always produce desired result?" There's only one result: the right one. Else it has not found. Spotlight is a joke, a tangent in some engineer's mind who has long forgotten the consumer / user.

comment Adding second iCloud account wipes out photostream
I confess to not really understanding your comment, can only respond that I have about eight different streams going to and from people, on muy iPad, in addition to my own - and that all tbhe Shared get lumped into one, on MacBook Pro.
