Congratulations. Pointless. Only Jailbreak and Unlock are of interest. Just sold my iPhone4 for 700 cash today, getting myself a Canadian one, and eventually the jailbreak will be released.
    Congrats man... you're a douchebag.

    I've never had a problem using the sim card from my iPhone to activate any of the phones I repair, about 2-3 a month.

    Sorry, I don't think its going to work on the first generation iPhone. Those you have to activate differently. Gotta fix your power button first man lol.

    HAHAHA i love when the grammar police try to correct people, but don't even proof read their own comment. priceless


    And this will help for those rare occasions when ATT isn't the official carrier. With spirit in the works, and it not supporting hacktivation. This is well worth the 5 dollars.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    Hold on does this mean you can USE the phone on the sim you put in, or just that you can get past the emergency only screen? Like if you used a tmobile sim could you just go to using a tmobile plan or would you have to jb and really unlock first still?

    Let me clarify this for everyone that says they just use any AT&T sim card to activate or for those that think that this is nothing new........

    This is for someone who buys an iPhone and does not know what carrier it's locked to or just doesn't have a sim card from the carrier that it's locked to.

    AT&T is not the only iPhone carrier.

    They can buy one of these sim cards and hactivate their phone.

    Thanks for the info Sherif!!

    Yeah I was just about to suggest something similar.

    If you go to AT&T & tell them u want to put ur phone on a Go Phone plan they usually give u a sim for free (or 5 bucks ). Just don't let them see ur iPhone because it's the only phone they don't allow Go plans with.
