I have a UK Iphone 4 that I would like to use on straight talk network. I am unable to activate this Iphone using an AT&T or straight talk SIM. How can I get past the activation and is it even possible. Would appreciate any input you can give me. Thanks

You would have to hacktivate to bypass the activation a screen. Can be done with Sn0wbreeze/pwnagetool.

I was able to hactivate the Iphone using RedSnow. It is now running 5.1.1 firmware and has Cydia Installed. However, it is saying no service when I put my straight talk SIM in the phone. I am getting this Iphone ready for a friend and testing it out with my straight talk SIM to see if it works. When the SIM is in it is saying Unknown(in settings, phone) for the number and carrier. Let me know if you have any other ideas. Thanks.

If this iphone is locked to ATNT and Straight talk is a different carrier then you are not going to get service even though you hactivate it. Not sure if the latest Gevey Sim will unlock your baseband of 04.13.xx for IOS 5.1.1

I found out the phone is locked to TMobile in the UK. How do I obtain a factory unlock to allow me to use in the states? Thanks.

You need Tmobile to IMEI unlock it for you.

Yeah I have the same problem. I was with O2 in London and I have jailbroken my phone and want to use an AT&T sim card. It's 5.1
Any hope for me?

I am not sure about the O2 network in the UK. However, I got in touch with T Mobile in the UK and they said activating the Iphone with the original SIM card should unlock it for use in the US. Good Luck
