    Exclamation iPhone 4 4.1 02.10.04.. "insert valid sim card with no pin.."
    so, i think i may have messed up.

    a few days ago, i bought a used iphone 4(4.1, 02.10.04) that i planned to unlock and use with my t-mobile(usa) service.
    the guy i bought it from didn't restore it himself, so after fighting with itunes to accept my account as the devices main account and not his, i did what i can only describe as a "hard restore." i held down sleep/home until it restarted then plugged it into my macbook and itunes popped up and said "blahblahblah restore?" so i restored.

    all is well now, with the exception of one little thing..

    "No SIM card installed.. Insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone."

    as stated previously, i have only a t-mobile SIM card. once i trim it down to micro-size, can i use this to activate? or must i find an at&t one? -- my girlfriend uses at&t(samsung phone), can i use her SIM to activate my iphone and have her still be able to use it without issue in her phone?

    i read something online about being able to "hacktivate".. is this an option? if so, what do i do?



    i guess to sum it all up, how do i activate my iphone 4 4.1 02.10.04 without the original at&t SIM card?


    thanks!

    You can use limera1n or greenpoison to hacktivate it. but there is no unlock yet for that baseband. There hopefully will be soon though.
