    Exclamation activate iphone 3g? with prepay att sim card or only jail break only?
    could a prepaid at&t sim card with 20 minutes on it activate my non-activated iphone 3g or do i need a att sim card that has a data plan? or do i need to... jailbreak it and use that activate i heard that was bad if i have att.

    Are you actually going to use the phone as a phone? Or do you just want it activated and why?

    Because it would be much better, easier to do it with software. And cheaper.

    No, you cannot activate with a prepaid AT&T SIM Card.

    Best thing to do is activate it with RedSn0w, but you won't have Push working
