    Default Iphone repair if no AT&T account

    I had issues with my iphone 3g reading the sim card after many attempt to solve the issue myself I sent the phone back to apple in the US and they said the sim card hoster(internal connectors) is damaged and they are ready to replace the phone for free as long as I can bring the AT&T card.
    the problem is I do not have an AT&T sim card as I bought the phone in secondary market in Dubai. Any advise on how to go around this.

    go to one of the AT&T kiosk stands in a mall and say you lost your phone and you need a sim card cloned because you have an old phone at your house that you can use. They will just give you a free sim card :-) Because to activate it you have to put it inside the phone and call it. Then just send that to apple and if they bitch tell them the same story

    The apple store will do it as long as there is a SIM card in there.

    told ya
    your only option is to talk to AT&T and get iPhone plan with new SIM without iPhone.
    AT&T will cancel iPhone original SIM on their recordrs but because iPhone cannot be connected to iTunes you have to leave it for service in AT&T branch where you got plan.
