    Default bricked it?

    i bought this 2g off of ebay after some lady fried it in her car charger. i replaced the battery and it turned right on! now stupid me i tried to erase everything. well i dont have a sim card nor do i plan on getting one. i was just gonna use it as a itouch. i got to the insert sim card screen with an emegency only call. while i had it plugged in i was playing around with blackra1n and accidentally activated it. so it went through and i saw the picture of the guy and would not reboot so i did it manually. now i have it caught in a restore loop . the screen is always black unless i try a restore and then it goes through the steps and i end with an error. occasionally i can get the reload bar to go all the way through but then it just stays there. did i brick it? if i put in an active sim card would it then work? i need some help here!!!!

    This works Perfect...my iPhone now has the NEW OS

    and regarding your Sim card....you know you could go to Walmart and purchase a Sim card and then purchase a Pay as you Go talk plan and then when the minutes run out you could let it expire or add as many minutes you would like...that way you can use the iphone as a iPod and a iPhone when you need to make calls...up to you
