    Question No SIM card, need to activate phone

    I have an iphone4 with no SIM card, trying to activate it. Is there a way to activate the phone and use it just for itunes. I got a regular SIM for phones, cut it so it can be a micro SIM and inserted it, but it still say no SIM installed, insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone. I do not want to get a service, just want it activated to use as a iPod until I go back to the states and then I'll go with a service plan.

    So how can I activate it? Any help will be appreciated.

    You can jailbreak and hacktivate - however you need to use tinyumbrella to determine which iOS version is current installed. Then you can choose the correct jailbreak tool

    Ok using TinyUmbrella, the iOS is 4.3.3. with baseband of 04.10.01. I already downloaded the PwnageTool 4.3 for jailbreaking but what do I use to hacktivate it. I tried using GreenP0sin but after I follow their instruction, the iphone is stuck on a black screen with a bunch of small white text. So i reboot the iphone and its back to the No Sim card installed. I am at lost at what to do. I went to PwnageTool to download the restore 4.3.3 ipsw. I should be able to jailbreak it but I can't seem to get pass the No SIM card installed part.

    Pwnagetool can hacktivate - you just need to choose the correct options.

    Greenpois0n doesn't support 4.3.x yet

    If you are still stuck, publish your restore log as explained in the link below in my signature.

    I have about the same problem,
    had to restore without original sim card. now itunes tells me the sim card is not supported. I have a DITS sim card like this to activate:
    Activate iPhone 4 3GS without Sim Card
    used to work but it seems it doesn't anymore...

    so i'm stuck on emegency call screen and can't do anything... tried
    Greenpoison PC/mac: crash
    Redsnow, Pwnagetools: never detect my Ipsw correctly

    i'm on a 3gs on 4.0.1 (verified with tiny umbrella) and windows 7 x64

    please someone has a solution?

    Apple blocked this on the server side many months ago. Sorry but this DITS sim is worthless now.

    damn apple.... anyways, I manage to fix this using custom pre-activated firmwares from Mahmood Andishmand Welcomes you all !! - Jailbreak & Unlock (moderator edit: link to warez files removed)

    Now works like a charm with IOS 4.3.3 jailbroken and unlocked!

    You want to be very careful using 'pre-activated' firmware, especially when you could use redsn0w to do your own hacktivation. I have no idea if the firmware you downloaded is legit, etc., but it's very possible for them to have bundled other things in there. Considering the forums have had a rash of people posting that they think they have keyloggers on their phones because people are getting information from their text messages, I can't stress enough the importance of doing it yourself if the option is available. That custom firmware could have a whole lot of other custom modifications that you may not know about.

    In either case, glad to hear you got your problem solved, but in the future -- this is as simple as jailbreaking and choosing the right version for the iOS you have, and making sure the jailbreak hacktivates. Much safer than using a file you found on the internet.

    Hi there.

    I have the same problem.
    Got an iPhone4 but since I dont have the micro-sim I canīt activate it.
    Is there any way to bypass the emergency screen?
    I saw that this can be possible using Pwnagetool but I'm running windows.
    How can I activate it and then jailbreak it to use any sim?

    Regards,

    kodiak

    You don't mention the current iOS version that is on the iPhone (TinyUmbrella can tell you this). Greenpois0n doesn't work on iOS 4.3.x at all.
    Redsn0w and pwnagetool apply a sha1 check to he IPSW, so if they reject the IPSW you are supplying it is for one of two reasons:

    Wrong IPSW version - specific versions of redsn0w/pwnagetool are designed to work with specific iOS versions. You need to post the specific version of the tool you are using and then we can advise which IPSW iOS versions will work.

    Corrupt/incomplete/modified IPSW - these will fail the sha1 check.

    Redsn0w is your best choice. As explained above, you need to first find out which iOS version the phone is currently running.
