    Welcome to MMi

    It's not in iTunes, it's during the pwnage.

    If you use simple mode you will get a blue window.

    Expert mode, you select General > Activate the phone.

    You have to sync in iTunes to activate.

    (See attached screenshots)

    If your phone is unlocked through yellowsn0w, you'll have to wait for ultrasn0w to get carrier service.
