    Default Iphone needs activation

    Hello,

    I just received this phone back from apple. I am using it on an unsupported sim card for the 2g phones. Therefore I when i connect it to itunes to update to 3.0 I cannot as it says either no sim card or unsupported sim card.

    How can I activate the phone so that I can update to 3.0 quickly and then use redsn0w?

    Right but since my phone is not activated I cannot do the step which requires the restore or update as the only screen i can see in itunes states that I am usuing an unsupported sim card..

    While the phone is connected to the computer, turn it off. Now, press and hold the POWER and HOME button for 10 secs. Release the power but keep holding the HOME. In about 8 secs later, it'll go into DFU mode and you can see (if you are on M$ Windoze) bunch of USB messages. You should have RESTORE option now instead of the unsupported sim message.
