    with a 4s you would need to have the official sim card to activate it, meaning the sim card which the phone is locked to

    The carrier is globe (phillipines) so this is who the phone is locked to, could I buy a prepaid globe sim and use my micro sim cutter to cut it and use it to activate my 4s? I just want to use it as an ipod

    Your misunderstanding me the provider ( the company the phone is locked too) is Globe, can I use any globe sim to activate my phone. Just like can I use any AT&T sim to activate an AT&T locked phone

    I apologize for that.

    Yes you should be able to activate it using a Globe sim then
