    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Restore it to 3.1.2 and then run redsnow or blackrain to hactivate and jb.
    Then it will let you in the homescreen without activating it officially and picking a plan etc...

    I had to ask my friend who still uses a 1st Gen to borrow his sim for a minute.

    Real annoying.
