    Default iPhone 4 5.0.1 JB - Invalid SIM even with SAMPrefs - CANNOT Activate
    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?

    You sure it is a ATT locked iPhone? What problems were you getting when trying to activate with the ATT sim you have?

    Positive thats it's ATT locked, its not my first time jailbreaking an iphone, in fact, it's how I made money in High School.

    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.

    Then something is wrong with your ATT sim card. I activate them all the time just fine. I have a few of them I keep lying around.

    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.
