    No, you cannot. The iPhone needs a SIM card to be activated, it cannot be used unless the phone functions are active

    110%. The iPhone is a phone, and Apple intends for it to be used that way. The only way to have a comparable device is to buy an iPod.

    Activate iphone 3G problem

    I've the same problem.
    I bought iphone 3G (activated) from ebay and I clicked restore from itune.
    Suddenly, it locked.
    It said "Insert an unlocked and valid SIM to activate iphone".

    What should I do in order to activate it?
    Can I use my friend SIM card (AT&T not iphone plan) to activate at AT&T?

    I've no idea how to activate my iphone. I shouldn't have restored from itune, right?

    Just download the program winpwn2.5, and jailbreake, then unlock it that way. This for windows. there is a mac version for it too, but i forgot its name.

    use quickpwn and activate it. And yes, do not restore an activated phone that you did not get directly from the phone company

    :apple:If u restore it, its not unlocked anymore, its going to be ATT only.
    However u can unlock it again and its really easy, just download winpwn2.5 and read the instructions on the site ur downloading it from.
