    Default Activated with AT&T but iTunes goes me on my nerves

    Hi,

    The guy from whoch i bought my iphone activated me the phone with the at&t sim, so i can use all features, but not the phone...

    But what really goes me on my nerves is, that everytime i connect my iphone to itunes the program wants to launch the AT&T Website where i have to activate my phone... is this normal?
    I just click on cancel, and after that i can select the content i want to sync and see the iphone status.
    Problem now:

    i have updated to the newest itunes version and everytime i connect the phone itunes wants to connect to the store and also downloaded the firmware update. Normally i cancel the firmware update, but now i can cancel and then itunes goes into a network error (code 9808)...

    so what do i have to do?
    there must be an solution to sync the iphone even if i am offline... i can click sync the phone on the left navigation, but i cannot edit the content to sync?!?!

    I donīt wanna click away everytime the at&t Website where i can add my phone to my contract oder start a new contract. I just wanna start directly in the iphone settings where i can select the content so sync.

    Any ideas, what i have to do? I donīt really know why itunes does not recognize that my iphone is already activated...

    Have you turned off all the "automatic" synch options in iTunes?
    Loading the new firmware is no problem (iTunes dowloads it first), just make sure that you don't update your iPhone afterwards.
    Of course only if you don't want to have the new firmware.

    test it without the at&t-sim.card in the phone.

    The activation of the phone seems to be tied to the AT&T SIM card, as far as I can tell. When you activate the phone via iTunes, you're actually activating the SIM card with your AT&T account information.

    Since you're probably not using the AT&T SIM card that it was originally activated with, iTunes will see the phone as being unactivated, and prompt you to do so again.

    Agreed! Try it without the SIM. I don't get any sort of activation prompt with the SIM removed.
