    Default Activate a 3G with a 2G AT&T SIM card for PNS

    hi guys!

    does anybody knows, if it's possible to activate a 3g from switzerland in itunes with an at&t card from my first 2g us iphone, to get working push notification in germany with a prepaid provider sim?

    another option: an official sim card from an telekom iphone contract of a friend of mine?!

    does it make any difference for only activating, from which country the iphone is

    thx alot and best regards

    You can only activate a phone with a SIM from the official carrier is locked to. I know At&T is the official carrier in the US, but the 3G is from Switzerland so that SIM will not pass the activation in itunes. You can only Hactivate with redsn0w.

    The only choice you have is to use a SIM from the official Swiss carrier.

    Yes, in order for the PUSH to work you need a SIM from the official carrier that iPhone is locked to.
    After activation you can just skip to your SIM with no problem (after installing ultrasn0w of course).

    I also need PUSH to work, so I got a pre-paid SIM from the official carrier my iPhone is working on, and I always activate with that SIM in, then I just change it to the SIM I want to work with.
