07-05-2009, 10:42 PM #44Hacktivation possible??
However since I too plan to cancel the AT&T contract after 30 days I was wondering.. any idea on how one can hacktivate the 3gs if ever needed?
(I have a long history of having to restore my iphone after screwing around with it.)
EDIT: So I did some googling and came across a solution myself.. apparently you can hacktivate by copying a lockdown file to the iphone. see the link: http://www.ilikemyiphone.com/2009/07...ilbreakunlock/

1. i restored 3.0 stock
2. put in the att sim to activate
3. then removed it
6. airplane mode ON
8. airplane move OFF
your results may vary, but my t-mo coverage works, its the wife that has intermittent dropouts

So you all know...You can use ANY At&t sim card to activate the phone. It does not matter if the sim is no longer activated. I have a pile of At&t sim card in my drawer I obtained from friends and family members over the years when they get new phones or new sims. The old sims work to activate the phone everytime, the phone just shows no service bars. If your contract is ending or you cancel your contract, the old sim will still work to activate the iPhone.

sorry to stray OT. but as far as going to an apple store and getting a new contract... just to get a 3G-S
how long do i have to keep the contract to keep the phone?? Should i just keep it for 30 days? then cancel and say im going to another carrier? 175 for ETF really isn't that bad and it would be a lot cheaper than paying for the full service for 24 months... if someone could shed some light on the topic i would greatly appreciate it, please pm me or i guess post back here.

Alternatively I also have an AT&T prepaid sim card which is no longer active as I havent used it in over 3 months. Would this work as well?

this still doesnt cover how to hacktivate without an at&t prepaid sim.
07-06-2009, 09:24 AM #59Dev team pwnage tool or quickpwn for 3gs

Do a search for 3GS hacktivation. There is a thread about it.
