    Ok, so I restored my iPhone 3G and afterwards, I am stuck on the

    "No SIM card installed"
    "Insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone."

    page so I can't use the phone without activating it.

    I've been searching the web and found a bundle of sources but most of them are really outdated so I'm not sure which ones will work and which ones are patched.

    I found this:
    Activate iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Officially Without Original SIM or Hacktivation with Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 & SAM | Redmond Pie

    does this work?

    If not, can you tell me what works?

    I don't know if this will be of importance, but I'll have to unlock it to T-Mobile after activation.

    I'd really appreciate it if anybody could take a few minutes off their time and help me out! Thank you!

    I need this quick so please help if you can, as soon as possible
