    Initial activation needs to be done with the SIM card that was provided with the phone. The only way around this is to jailbreak and hacktivate the phone, then add the SAM repo to your phone, download SAM, use it to revert to stock lockdownd, then configure your SIM settings and attempt to re-activate in iTunes. This should get you past this screen.

    Ah, you're right -- I just checked up on it and there is no currently known way to hacktivate the 4S. Neither Absinthe nor sn0wbreeze will make a pre-hacktivated firmware. I hate to say I do not know how you will activate this at present without the SIM card associated with the account that purchased the device... You'll need to find the SIM that came with it, as presently I just don't know if any way to bypass activation on the 4S.

    All you have to do is buy a sim card with the same like to the phone, eg O2 sim for 99p. Cut it to size, very easy just check youtube and type cutting sim for iphone. Then activate the phone, takes couple of seconds. You can then use Ansinthe to jailbreak.
    When done you can take the sim out and it will work as a glorified Ipod touch!!!

    Just wait for an unlock to be released and your laughing!
