There appear to be multiple problems with iOS6.  I did a hard reset and now everything is working.

Did you lose your pictures when you did the reset? Mine is asking for a factory restore. Tried to update to iOS6 this morning and it failed and mine phone's been off ever since. iTunes is telling me that I need to restore to factory. Will I lose everything?

yeah i had to do a factory reset myself, you will lose everything but if you had your phone backed up to your computer or icloud all of your pictures, contacts and apps should be there, you will lose all of your music though. i called sprint and someone was able to help me reactivate my phone, so if you were to call sprint they could go through the steps with you just as they did me
