    Default activating a brand new iphone 2g without data plan

    My mother had an iphone 2g that just broke. She was paying extra for insurance, so she got it replaced, but then decided to upgrade to iphone 4. So I have an original iphone (model #A1203) fresh out of the box that has never been activated or used that I would like to use. I currently have an ATT voice plan that I'm using with a motorala razr, and I'd like to use my sim from the RAZr in the iphone 2g without an ATT data plan (welcome to 2007!). I downloaded the pwnage tool off the link from this site, and tried to follow directions found in other posts, but I'm having trouble. The pwnage tool says I don't have itunes installed, and it can't find any ispw files. I do have itunes 10.2.1 on my computer. I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.7. I'm not super familiar with phone jargon or technologies. Would someone please give me straightforward advice about what I need to do, what to download, where to download it from, etc. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

    You need pwnagetool 3.1.5 (and that doesn't know about any iTunes 10 version) - newer versions of pwnagetool have (I think) dropped support for the 2G iPhone. It *should* work, but is essentially untested. If you want to be sure, get an iTunes 9.x version instead. iTunes - The iPhone Wiki

    AT&T can (and does) detect iPhones running on their network without a data plan, you may get lucky if you turn off the 2G mobile data entirely (via SBSettings) - but they are getting increasingly aggressive about capturing (from their perspective) missing revenue.
