    Default How to activate iPhone 3gs 3.1.3

    Hi! I just bought an iPhone 3gs from ebay and it came with 3.1.3 firmware and 5.12 baseband, and when i turned it on its in the please insert a valid sim card screen... From what I understand is not possible to hacktivate the phone, nor unlock or jaiolbreake, the only solution is to activate it with an ATT sim card.

    If I manage to get an old att sim card (not activated right now) or a Pay as you Go sim card, will I be able to activate it???

    If so, please tell me wich are the steps.

    Thanks a lot,

    Yes, place SIM card in and connect to a computer with iTunes on it. Done.
    You can only use that iPhone with AT&T as you cannot unlock it so you night as well get your own PAYG SIM anyway. unlock possibly released late June.
    You can JB with SpiritJB.com

    If you use an AT&T PAYG SIM with iPhone you will be forced to buy the $30 "unlimited data plan" - see AT&T signals an abrupt end for some prepaid iPhone plans (updated)
