    I have an AT&T iPhone 4 and bought an activation SIM card but it did not work. Asked why and was told to edit something in the root directory. However how do I access root directory on a non jailbroken phone??? Cannot jailbreak when it is not activated!

    You cannot, by definition, access the root directory on a non-jailbroken iPhone.

    I assume it is not an AT&T sim? If so you will need to Jailbreak and unlock for it to work.

    Ok so Jailbreak = root access....

    so you cannot get root access if you don't have root access (Jailbreak) :confused::confused:

    and not, currently you cannot Jailbreak iP4 without being activated first

    Too bad it's impossible to find AT&T sim cards on eBay. :D
