so, activating through itunes doesnt help much at all to be honest because when u try it the activation gets cancelled. I called ATT customer care and they were able to provide me with the unlimited data pack for my iphone 1st gen simply by explaining to them that my iphone 4 was out for repair and that i needed to activate my 1st gen iphone and that it works but my plan still said 2gb datapro which is a 3g package. Explained that i did not want to go over on my data because i knew that iphone 1st gen didnt have 3g and needed to have the edge data plan activated for the phone.
