Thread: Is it impossible to jailbreak an unactivated 3GS on 4.0.1?

    Question Is it impossible to jailbreak an unactivated 3GS on 4.0.1?
    I bought a 3GS on ebay, and upgraded it to 4.0.1. It's not acitvated - when i put in a AT&T SIM iTunes wants me to register my social security number etc.

    Is it really impossible to do something with this phone? I'm pretty sure it doesn't have SSHS hashes backed up before 4.0 (is there a way to check which hashes Cydia has?).

    Have you tried activating it with a phonebook sim?

    Isn't the purpose of those card to "emulate" a SIM-card from the wanted carrier? I already have many AT&T SIM-cards, but they all get the same message (need to sign up for a contract).

    I'm not sure they emulate the carrier, they just have a universal ICCID which allows activation. It is worth a shot. You can also check this thread for more information on this: http://modmyi.com/forums/iphone-news...-sim-card.html

    I believe some people are having the same issue as you later in that thread.
