Do I have to activate iPhone to sell it to my friend?
I just bought a new 3GS for my friend who wants to use it on Verizon. I jailbroke the phone, and I was going to unlock it. But the instructions at iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 3GS Using PurpleSn0w say that it must be activated with AT&T first?
I have a Blackberry and don't really want to use the iPhone. How can I just jailbreak, then unlock this phone and let him use it? Do I have to activate it under my account and then just cancel the data plan?
And how the heck are all these people on eBay selling unlocked phones? I told him he better watch out or I will sell the phone on eBay for lots of money instead of selling it to him for what I paid for it! :)
