Discuss [1.1.4][ziphone][Advice] 2.0 on iPhone 2G to activate new 3G carrier at the iPhone "2G" (Rev. 1) - Hackint0sh.org; Originally Posted by bugnote

ok, I can confirm that you can activate with any o2 sim card, I used a paygo one, I also used a new itunes account I setup using the redeem voucher codes.
the activation process only took a few seconds.
The bad news is (and I'm sure comes as no surprise to anyone) that as soon as you put a non o2 (in my case) sim in the phone, it locks down to the activation screen.
taking the sim out gives you an itouch with appstore, but that's about it.
my gevey sims didn't work either, never confirmed if they did work or not, but maybe a turbo sim clone will do the job?
edit 2 - putting the o2 sim back in, its trying to activate offline, so just to confirm, no phone functionality with this 'activation' process
