    Default Help unlocking iPhone 1
    I was given my dad's old iphone 1. I took my Att sim card that was in a sony walkman phone and put it in the iphone. But nothing happens it just sits on the emergency dial screen and everything else is locked. Says no service in upper left.

    Ive looked everywhere for a way to unlock it but no luck. I dont even care if the phone service works(though would be nice) but it would be awesome to use as an ipod touch type device.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Will it have to do anything/make any changes to my contract to activate it? I already have a phone contract with ATT just not a smartphone/data plan one. I started to do it but was afraid it was gonna renew my contract for another 2 years or charge me extra on my phone bill.

    Ok I tried to do the itunes activation thing to see what would happen. It wanted me to sign up for a data plan. Not ready to do anything like that till I pay for my iphone 4 upgrade.

    Is there anyway to bypass this stage and just use the iphone not as a phone but as a ipod touch?

    You should be able to activate it without a data plan. If you have an old AT&T sim with no service just use that one. It'll work no problem. The issue with hactivating is battery drain.
