How do i activate iPhone 3G without the orginal SIM?
Ok, so I restored my iPhone 3G and afterwards, I am stuck on the
"No SIM card installed"
"Insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone."
page so I can't use the phone without activating it.
I've been searching the web and found a bundle of sources but most of them are really outdated so I'm not sure which ones will work and which ones are patched.
I found this:
Activate iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Officially Without Original SIM or Hacktivation with Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 & SAM | Redmond Pie
does this work?
If not, can you tell me what works?
I don't know if this will be of importance, but I'll have to unlock it to T-Mobile after activation.
I'd really appreciate it if anybody could take a few minutes off their time and help me out! Thank you!
I need this quick so please help if you can, as soon as possible

You can "hacktivate" the phone with redsn0w. However this can cause poor battery life, so we recommend legitimate activation (either with an original SIM or with SAM spoofing an original SIM)
SAM / redsn0w works, but the guides on redmondpie are usually not very good quality. Try iClarified instead.
This question has been asked (and answered) before, did you search here at hackint0sh.org at all before creating a duplicate thread?
