This evening, suddenly and without warning, my iPhone decided it required activation. However, I can't get it to activate properly.

I have an iPhone 4S running iOS7. I have had some variety of iOS7 since July, as a guy at work had a developer account and added our devices to his account. (I work at a company that does IT research including mobile devices). Earlier today my iPhone was working fine, but a few minutes ago I woke it up and it suddenly said it needed to be activated. I entered my Apple ID and password but it won't activate. It says it cannot connect to the server. I've been trying for a while with no luck. I connected my iPhone back up to my laptop and tried to restore it, but it says it can't do that because I set up "Find my iPhone."
Can anyone help me?
