    Question OOTB 1.1.2 Activation Without AT&T Simcard??

    Hi, i'm Tom and im a quite n00b when it comes to Hack things like the iPhone, PSP, etc..
    But i can confirm that i can follow tutorials and how-to's and at this Point i want to thank everybody who release such great hacks and tuts.

    THX very much!!!

    I've learned many things while hacking my PSP, my XBOX 1, some various XBOX360 DVD-Rom Drives, my Wii, some other Sim-Locked Handys and so on. So i can say im a n00b when it comes to hack things by myself. But if there is a tut or something i can follow them very well. (even tiny soldering tuts lite PSP-UP Mods are no problem, it's my secret passion )
    I've read a lot about iPhone unlocking, activation and i can say i know what the baseband is and what the bootloader does etc.

    The only thing i really don't get is:
    If i get an OOTB iPhone 1.1.2 with bl 4.6 lets say "for Christmas" and don't have the AT&T original SIM Card because it's got lost during the Flight back to my Homecountry.
    can i still activate the iPhone without it and without a TurboSim (damn ist so overpriced)?
    I say activating not unlocking. I know that at the moment nobody can unlock any iPhone with 4.6bl (without TurboSim) but iv'e read that there is a way to get the iPhone working as a "overpriced" iPod Touch. Because only the sim-activation is left out.
    So i can use my iPhone with all its functions exept the SMS/cellphone function???

    There are two very confusing Questions on this i can't understand:

    1. Do i need the original AT&T Sim Card to activate (not unlock!) my iPhone (week48 production)??

    2. So the baseband controlls all the wireless "antenna" functions (i read already) will the WLAN work if i activate but not unlock my iPhone?

    Please excue my very bad english because it is not my primary Language and i can speak much better than i write!

    If anybody can simple answer my 2 Questions without flaming etc. i will thank him honestly because im afraid to get an iPhone i can not use.

    1. Yes, you can Jailbreak it
    2. Yes, WiFi will work.
    The only thing you have to use the AT&T Sim, is to program the TurboSim

    1. I think AT&T Sim Card is not needed for the Jailbrake and activation. However if you plan to buy a Turbosim from Bladox(blank one, not programmed for iphone like some on ebay) you will need that AT&T Sim Card. So don't throw it in the trash.

    2. Wi-fi will work. Its a different antenna than basebands.

    LISsten!! there is something even better than turbo sim, wich is very expensive and hard to setup, you can take a look at www.iphonehellas.com or iphonesimfreer.com both are almost the same, but is the greek and chinese version for turbosim, im tented to buy it, if you do it, tell me how it works!!

    Oh wow great, sounds like i have got a chance.
    Thank you!

    But let me guess, i don't need the AT&T card if some day the anySIM for 4.6bl resurrects like phoenix from the ashes?

    Do i need the SIM card in any way? (Turbosim is no solution for me.)
    i for myself don't think so because i can not find any thread which says you need the SIM.

    The only Thread wich lets me guess that i probably need one is this:
    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18284

    And it states:
    STEP3 - ACTIVATE AND JAILBREAK


    Before you complete this part MAKE SURE that the AT&T Sim card is in your phone
    This confuses me some bit because it's written "activation",in this context does it say "activation" or "unlock for any sim card"?

    uh man, so much infos...

    I think i should read more & more and i will soon get my answers by myself...

    EDIT: Iv'e found the missing Piece in my Puzzle this thread ( http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthre...ghlight=at%26t ) states that you even don't need the AT&T Sim if you want to use TurboSim because you can programm the imsi to the Turbosim on another cellphone wich accepts every sim card (no sim- or net-lock) because the only matter is that you can not programm the Turbosim on an locked iPhone (obviously). So if there will be no other Way in the Future than the Turbosim, i can programm the Turbosim on my Nokia E61...

    So, there are no more/other Problems for me.

    Thank you for your attention!

    I have to admit that i don't lost my AT&T SIM but my grandparents wich make Holidays in the usa unpacked the whole iPhone because they were affraid that the Mad people at the duty will not accept an iPhone without CE marks on the back.
    In europe nothing without an CE sign would be tolerated to bring in (if it is packed like you bought it) but if it is not packaged like a new one you have a chance that the dutyofficers think its your Phone that you use every day.
    This is not an tutorial to save taxes, my grandparents paid the taxes before, but they were affraid that the european duty will catch (and detain) the iPhone due to the lack of the CE sign on the back.

    So, when my grandparents arrive i might have a bit of luck and the AT&T SIM ist right there IN the iPhone because only the packaging were thrown away...

    Thank you for this helpful hint!

    As you see i'm new to this Forum and i simply don't want to brake any Rules wich were might hinted in some difficultly to find Threads.

    So what you do with your Taxes is not in my interest and is also "OFF-TOPIC", i admit that my short words of explanation why i thought that i've got no AT&T SIM is also "OFF-TOPIC", but somebody asked me.

    But who asked you what you do with your taxes?

    I don't want to begin a flame war etc. but i can not stand those people which only want something to post, maybe to higher thier Postcounter or their Ego...

    I don't know...

    So, as i'm new to this Foum i don't want to make a big wave out of this thread, my Questions are all answered. The other questions too. So lets don't waste another persons webspace for such a conversation...
