Thread: Activate a phone without jailbreak or unlock

    Default Activate a phone without jailbreak or unlock
    I may be getting an iphone 2g for a family member and they will not have AT&T service to go along with it. They will not be savvy enough to jailbreak this device and would not have any use for the cydia apps or installer anyway. Is it possible to activate this phone without jailbreaking it so they can use it like an iPod touch?

    You can activate it only with an AT&T simcard and itunes. Unless, you wanna "hacktivate" it which will also jailbreak it. Which, shouldnt matter....they can still use it as an ipod if thats what they wanna do. Why not get an ipod touch?

    I would get them the iphone vs the ipod touch for two mojor reasons

    1) I might be able to get this iPhone for under 99 bucks
    2) The iphone has a mic built in and I know they want to record audio.

    So what is the story behind this "hacktivate" I assume a google search will yield results for me.

    Thaks for the replies.

    Using Pwnage (which is what you use to jailbreak)...will also "hacktivate" the phone. In other words, activate it without AT&T.
