    I used a new 3g prepaid sim (with no credit) and connected to itune to activate my phone. now I want to restore my iphone because I want to use gevey ultra, can I use the same sim card to reactivate it by just plugging into itune?

    i think as long as its the official sim it should work out.

    You can use the SIM card as long as it coincides with the carrier that the phone is locked to. Example: If the SIM card is AT&T and the phone is locked to AT&T, or if the SIM is Rogers and the phone is locked to Rogers, etc.

    If the SIM card and carrier lock are different, activation in that manner will not be possible.

    Here's a definitive answer, no could should or maybe from me. I've used the following SIMs on freshly restored iphones and they all activated them (I'm in the USA):

    Net 10
    H2O
    Cingular (unactivated)
    AT&T/GoPhone (unactivated will also work)

    Essentially all piggyback AT&T. :D But yes, that stands to be correct.
