    Default Issues activating iPhone

    Hi, I have a brand new iPhone 3gs. I am having problems activating the phone. I'm with AT&T but not on a iPhone plan. When I insert my sim, I get no signal bars so it won't activate. When I try to get it activated in itunes, it would just say "iPhone" in the middle of the screen. I tried this on a stock 3.1.2 firmware, one pwned with "activation" uncheck, and one with it checked.

    Also, on all 3 firmware, it shows no signal. I was wondering if this has to do with something with my IMEI? I also borrowed my friend sim who is on a official iphone plan and the issue still exist.

    Oh, and when I check the warranty of the phone on the apple site, it states: "We are unable to display coverage details because your iPhone has not been activated.
    Please contact your iPhone retailer or wireless carrier to activate your iPhone."

    Try to restore again with pwnageTool with activation ticked on and with a NON AT&T sim in the iPhone.

    Then afterwards, put in the AT&T SIM
