In the last two weeks both Lisa and I have had our IPad suddenly deactivate. (I was going away for a few days when mine did this - very unhappy)
One option is to connect to the Activation Server but it give a message it is temporarily down.
We both had to activate through I tunes. With mine I had to work with Apple. It asks for the original Apple Password. Mine didn't work.
When going to Apple Help they wanted my serial number and IMEI. Finally I was able to get help when they realized I couldn't get that info from my tablet because it would not open. I now have these numbers in a safe place - hopefully never to need again.
When I asked why this had happened I received a vague " many thing can do it." I found a couple of more posts about this happening in the last couple of weeks.
I do sinc my tablet once a month. Reading more if they can't get it going you have to reset and upload your stuff again.
