    You new to activate it first. Find out who it is locked to and then find a way to get one of those sims.

    Or just use a stock AT&T sim to activate it and then use Sam preffs to revert the lockdown to stock. After u jailbreak it.

    If he uses a ATT sim to activate (assuming it is a ATT iPhone) then there is no need to use SAM at all.

    Of its an AT&T phone there shouldn't be any issues. Best to keep that AT&T sim just in case (it doesn't have to be active).

    So did this resolve your problem ? I just bought an iphone4s of cl and it has never been activated . Can i purchase a at&t sim card to activate or does it have to be the guy that originally bought this phones sim card?

    If your going to cut a regular sized SIM card to make a Micro-SIM suitable for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, try this guide from the GiffGaff community - they have a handy SIM template for cutting and a good informative video.

    I learned the hard way that its not quite as simple as it first looks, this video however helped me out.

    Micro SIMs
