    Cool query : Activation on 3GS

    Hi,
    I require your views on this situation.
    In INDIA, Airtel - official, MTNL - Unofficial

    i buy an Locked 3GS from Airtel, use my prepaid airtel sim to activate(iTunes), then jailbreak, & unlock.

    After 5 months, Number portability comes, switch to MTNL (unofficial carrier)
    now my airtel sim doesn't work,
    i put my new MTNL sim, in Previously-Airtel-activated 3GS, (assuming OS remains the same, & i don't have to restore)
    Will MTNL sim work,
    or will itunes display error with SIM, even if it's been activated earlier before with Airtel.

    or Can i use my Dead Airtel SIM, only for activation process, then switch to other carriers.

    **************
    Does this simply means, every time an iphone is plugged in itunes, itunes checks for Official sim (no matter it's activated or not)

    See number portability is yet to be launched in India.

    - You can activate the Iphone by putting Airtel SIM & connecting it to Itunes.
    - I am not sure if dead card works.
    - Once you jailbreak / unlock it become network free…. You can put any SIM

    Cool

    but this doesn't solve the query !

    does a previously Official-activated & then Ultrasnow-unlocked iphone require another activation, when unofficial sim is put in iPhone 3GS ?

    Cool

    gr8,
    then i think, i will buy the iphone from airtel, hopefully, it's at 32K, cheaper than in HK @ 33K.
    I'll activate it with my airtel, & then unlock, then even if i switch to MTNL in future, & my airtel-SIM becomes dead, i can ask anybody with an airtel SIM, to lend me his SIM for just activation process.

    Will it affect that guys Airtel SIM in anyways ?

    I hope this is easy, as it looks.

    Cool

    Hey, i wonder, if the thing, that i just talked about is Possible, then why is everybody still discussing the PUSH-Activation related problem, why didn't they did the same, and tried someone else's AT&T sim, to activate their iphone, and then unlock, and then continue using their T-mobile ?

    Does this mean, that nobody ever tried this ?
    or
    they did, & it's just not possible ?

    Cool

    Hey guys,
    What if 2 guys activate their Locked-iPhones, with the same AT&T SIM,
    Will they both get the same activation file from itunes, and receive each other PUSH's for applications on either of their handsets.

    Or

    iTunes won't activate another iPhone with a previuosly activated SIM.

    U mean to say, iTunes won't activate 2nd iPhone with the SIM, which has already been used before to activate the 1st iPhone !
