Thread: How do I activate a U.S. phone without an att sim?

  1. #1
    Default How do I activate a U.S. phone without an att sim?
    How can I activate a new phone that is from the U.S. without a sim? Or Can I just Jailbreak it and Unlock? Will it work or do I have to activate it first?

    You can jailbreak it and hacktivate it that way, you'll be fine.

    but how do you know what firmware is the iPhone 3G without activated it? Without know what firmware on the iPhone, how to know which firmware to use to jailbreak?

    I check the serial number and it was made before 3.1 came out. Way before!

    You go into Settings/General/About and you can find the Version there as well as the Modem Firmware.
    The Serial Number has nothing to do with it really.

    ^Not activated.. can't check the FW number silly.

    sunga.. Just do a restore to a 3.1 pwned ipsw or restore to 3.0/3.0.1 and JB w/redsn0w
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
