    It was discovered by Sherif Hashim. You can see the video he made of it here: YouTube - iPhone Activation without original sim -)
    That is a Phone Book Sim, which is a special sim used for that purpose its not a carrier sim like AT&T or any of the other carriers!

    If you notice when it put the Orange phone sim in it said not supported!

    If yo have a Phone Book Sim this would work as it is different than carrier supported!

    To be honest, I don't know anything about it. I just remembered seeing the video. Though, I'd suppose it was easier to get one of these phone book sims as they would probably (am I mistaken?) be available all over the world.

    Actually I did some research on this and the only place I found them was in Europe, but I did not look real hard for them!

    It seems the sim was about $5 US and like $17 shipping!

    I did a search in Radio Shak and found nothing!

    It would be nice to have but in my case I live in the US and have several AT&T sims!

    On another note I took my Iphone 4 micro-sim out and put it in my 3gs that I replaced the Iphone 4 with and the 3gs went back to working! I have not tried a regular AT&T sim cut down in my Iphone 4 to see if it works!

    Yes. If you update to 4.0/4.0.1/4.0.2 you can jailbreak with limera1n and unlock with ultrasn0w.

    Correct. Once you upgrade to any of those versions, you'll be stuck on the activation screen. Then simply run limera1n and it'll jailbreak and hactivate your device.

    You'll need access to wifi though, since you need to run Cydia and install ultrasn0w from there.
