Indeed copying youtube`s cache file from another legit activated iPhone to a workaround activated one, makes YouYube works. PARTIALLY.
YOU STILL CAN`T CONNECT to Youtube. What you will get are the last videos listed from the legit activated iPhone and you`ll be unable to update that list periodically, like the legit activated iPhones does each time you access Youtube app, that means, you`ll still getting Can`t connect to Youtube error.
What really happens is that when you activate the iPhone through AT&T, the first time you run Youtube app, it connects through Edge and authenticates your iPhone with GoogleLogin (Youtube) system. GoogleLogin assigns an authentication key for your phone and stores it somewhere in iPhone.
That`s why after that you are able to connect to Youtube thru wi-fi, because you`d already have you offical GoogleLogin authentication key, and the iPhone sends this key each time you try to update the video listing (this do not apply to bookmarks or history, so if you copy the history and bookmarks from a legit activated iPhone you WILL BE ABLE to see videos)
You can find more about this sniffing (WireShark) your wi-fi network when iPhone runs Youtube app.
Hope it helps

Take it back!
All this workaround business is inconvenient when it should work in the first place.
