    Default Itunes activating phone after restore
    So I got handed to me a 2g phone. My 3gs is jailbroken but I wanted this 2g as a backup and something to play with and learn from without putting everything at risk. But the catch is that I use my sim card to switch between phones. So, I restore this phone to 3.1.3. Wanted a clean slate and now itunes wants to register this phones account which took me to a detailed billing page. At this point I backed out, canceled and put my sim chip back in my 3gs. Yes I got chicken...lol.

    I just wanted to check here first. I can switch sim chips btwn my wife's phone with no problems. What can I do to avoid this itune step of activating phone? My account is already very active...lol.

    Thanks

    yeh jailbreak and unlock the 2g. than you should be ok with just putting your sim in it. after its jailbroken and unlocked and if your sim dosent work, just unlock again by re-installing ultrasnow/resnow whatever in cydia with your sim in phone and you should be all set. cheers!
    Hey! A Restore Never Hurts It's True!
