    Default Bought New IPhone - What Now? Activate? UNLOCK?
    Yo Everybody,

    I just bought a new iphone from Apple.

    here is my dilemma....

    I have an employee plan from ATT..an old employee plan...
    1000 anytime,1000 nw, and unlimited text...and they somehow let me get the unlimited data plan...which I have been trying to get for the last 3 months...

    anyway...I want to use this plan...I do not want to use the ATT plans they offer...I put my sim card in and nothing worked..so what now?

    My initial thought is that the phone needs to be activated..but how should i go about this?

    So How do I activate the phone?
    Should I get the phone unlocked?

    Why would I need the phone unlocked if im using an cingular sim card?

    PLease someone help!! I just dropped 450 on a phone and I cant use it!!!

    I would appreciate any help on this!!! Cheers Tom

    If it's 1.0.2 Firmware, follow the normal instructions to bypass activation.

    P.S. - Hack it IS real advice.

    Hack it! It's your only hope!
    Just look around this site all the steps have been laid out allready. Your weeks behind the rest of us. My advice to you is read read read. spend some time reading threads on this site, Even ones you don't care about now. Read it. They all add to the big picture.
