I am wondering if someone could give me accurate answer as my Google search turned up empty.
I applied for a solo 401k in late Dec. 2012 and signed the adoption agreement and application was received and accepted by provider in Dec. as well. But account was opened after the the 1st in January 2013.
My question is: Can I still make contributions for 2012? Or, will I get into trouble with the IRS?

Any contributions prior to the effective date would not be qualified and should not be entered into the plan.

What would the effective date be in this case?
Since: Dec 13

One more thing (just to mention), you can not retroactively contribute elective deferrals.
The effective date of the plan would be the date the plan was to go into effect. In the industry many plans are adopted in december but effective in january on a prospective basis.
