So my iphone is on 5.0.1 UNtethered JB with 4.10.01 BB.
I got my phone hactivated by jailbreaking the iphone since it wouldnt activate the phone prior to the jailbreaking even with legit (but not active) ATT Sim.
Now jailbroken, I tried using SAM but itunes keep saying it is invalid, I tried many different methods and configuration regarding the SAM but nothing works. (It is factory activated btw, aka Hackitvated)
I am also unlocked via Gevey sim Using t-mobile.
Does anyone have any solution regarding to this issue?

When I tried to activate it with ATT MicroSim, itunes refuse to do so and displays a long paragraph that can be summed up "Invalid Sim Card, I won't activate the iphone until you insert a legit Sim Card".
I gave up, I procede to jailbreak the iphone via redsn0w. Then installed SAMPrefs but still Hackivated.

I have two of them. They both worked when I activated my sister's iphone 4. They also worked when I activated my own when restoring 4.3.3.
Both Sim card says "No Service" on the top left of the iphone screen.

I know but I cant get past the activation part for some reason. I had a real ATT sim but itunes wont accept it, and I tried many different ATT Sim.

I got the No service thing also.
Don't know what I did but it fixed it self after a while of no service.
