    Default Don't have compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier ..work around?
    Bought a 4S in ASIA last week now back in Europe, When i turn on its saying

    "Only compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPhone"

    I don't have a compatable SIM as I'm not sure of the country it came from, I've tried all UK Sim cards so far. Any Smart ideas?

    Im hoping a activation will be added to the JB software like in Redsn0w, any ideas would be great as I'm sitting with a dummy iPhone 4S

    I'd try with the country in Asia you brought it in, as I'd presume it must have worked there at some point. Failing that, Sn0wbreeze for windows or Pwnagetool for mac, build a custom by going into expert mode & select the "Activate the iPhone [Hactivate]".

    Follow the rest of the instructions & you should be fine.That will skip the activation process.
