    Default How to (fake) activate?

    I cannot seem to get the phone to activate to use with AT&T. I only unlocked my iPhone so I could fake activate (since AT&T blocks MediaNet for those accounts who have activated an iPhone within the last billing cycle), and now I cannot get the phone to activate to work with my legal AT&T sim (not to mention my T-mobile.) I left my sim out when I restored and quickpwned it to activate, and it is stuck with ... in the corner. I recieve full signal where I live so it is not that.

    PS this probably should go under quickpwn, but I am also having trouble with yellowsn0w

    And here are the steps I used:

    1. DFU restored (I always restore this way)
    2. Quickpwned to jailbrake and activate
    3. Launched Cydia and updated.
    4. Added yellowsn0w source, and installed the app
    5. Inserted my t-mobile sim (up till now I havent had a sim in)
    6. Rebooted and it still says ... in the carrier (my unlocked 2G will say NO SERVICE when the t-mobile sim is in)
    7. Inserted legit AT&T sim, rebooted, still ...

    If an unlocked iPhone with that sim card says "no service", something must be wrong with that sim card or that subscription...

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Is it possible to get a 3G iphone with no contract and fully activate and unlock with yellowsnow app. I have an ATT account but do not want the iphone plan. Since WInpwn is not for 3g yet how can you activate phone?
    I have an ATT sim 1st Gen iphone not 3g.

    QuickPwn is 3G-ready. Use that to activate. Then unlock with yellowsn0w. It will work.

    Please don't post the same question in different threads. Thanks!

    i have a simmiliar problem:
    After restore, my original sim card dont´works in the 3G - but it works with every other normal (not 3g iphone) phone!

    Special problem: i changed iphones with my sister bevore holydays. Because her 3G had the old BASEBAND and i thought, as we all did, that will be the ony baseband to unlock. But Her phone, wich was former mine, works with her original tmobile card!
    iPhone 4 ios4.0.1 jailbreaked with jailbreakme.com

    as far as i know when it says NO SERVICE means the phone cant detect the carrier signal. If you're sure that your iphone is already unlock with yellowsn0w, try to move in other place (without any blockage like buildings) and wait for a minute to 10 till you get the carrier signal.

    If with Yellowsn0w you get the No Service error, just try to turn Airplane mode on and then off.

    If it doesnt work, try Reboots through BossPrefs.
