i bought a 2g iphone on ebay, that way jailbroken and restored back to factory here is the link to the phone that I bought.
I PHONE 2G 8GB UNLOCKED/JAILBROKEN 4.0 OS EXCELLENT !!! - eBay (item 150537453414 end time Dec-26-10 05:56:58 PST)
I tried to activate it through itunes and itunes never would prompt me to choose what data package I want. so I went to the att store and they told me that after 2 hours that the phone is damaged and can not comunicate with itunes, that i need to send my phone off to get fixed.
I find this odd because i was able to restore it and itunes sees it as a phone.
What do I need to do to get this up and running????

You never restored it correct? (Sorry for the 20 questions.) if you didnt the description of the phone says jailbroken and unlocked. That means it is already activated. To activate again you need to restore it.

That is strange. You are using the latest version of iTunes right?

What did AT&T say exactly. Your iPhone isn't broken if iTunes can read it. Have you tried doing it over your phone. If you give them your imei they should see you have a 2g and add the unlimited data.
