    Default Iphone 3GS activate without a sim card?
    For some reason I cant start a thread in the iphone general forum. So Im gonna post it here. I have a Iphone 3GS that I just use as a ipod now since I got my Iphone 4S. This morning I decided to upgrade it from 4.3.3 to 5.0.1. The upgrade seems to be fine. But now it wants me to activate the phone and keeps telling me to insert a sim card. But I dont want it on my plan. Is there a way to get it working but not as a phone?

    Not sure if this is correct, but I believe if you check "hacktivate" in redsn0w, it should trick it into being activated. Regardless, you should be able to use the phone without a sim card without modifying anything.
