    Default Activated with DVD Jon's method - no problem with Restore

    just want all to know the following facts:

    1. activated my iphone with itunes (patached with DVD Jon's method) on a PC.

    2. Sync all songs/pics/video without any problem with itunes (unpatched) on a Mac

    3. Restore successfully (ie. back to non-activated state with the picture of the earth) using itunes (unpatched) on a Mac

    So have fun patch you iphone to get activation

    Do you happen to have an active 3G SIM card from another phone on Cingular/ATT that you could put in after you have done the DVD Jon activation?

    Great to hear of your success ozbimmer & thanks for these helpful confirmations. I just used Jon's patch and finally activated the iphone, however, I'm now having trouble connecting to the itunes store with the phone and get a message about the sim not being right and it denies me access. Is this normal or has something gone wrong? When you said you 'synced all songs etc' on an unpatched Mac could you explain this further? I assume you used the itunes store or could access it? Also I'm having trouble activating the WiFi stuff through itunes! Could you please let me know if this sounds like something is not right. Any reply would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Sorry, but I'm a bit of a novice and only just activated the phone. Maybe I just need more time to learn how to use it better? ( Eg. I thought i had to continue using the patched itunes once it was activated?)

    I think you're supposed to take the SIM out once activated - if you're not using AT&T. Try that.

    That worked nicely - much appreciated, thanks Kevin. I'm still fumbling around trying to connect the WiFi, but hopefully I just need to learn how to do this properly. Unit looks great - quite impressed.
