    You need an AT&T sim card then put it in plug it in to your pc and open iTunes. It'll activate the phone. Btw don't upgrade firmware version.

    Wow you really need a dictionary in your life more than an iphone.

    Does it take you more time to spell words in this ridiculous fashion or does it come naturally?

    To quote one of the best movies ever:

    Mr. OP, what you've just said... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
