    Since JailbreakMe is a browser based jailbreak, how is it possible for somebody to jailbreak an unactivated iPhone if you cannot even access the springboard?

    Just putting a SIM from another activated ip won't work? CRAP! I was going to try this today.

    It does work. Just connect the phone to iTunes with the SIM inside. Don't click anything. The phone will activate within a few seconds. Dissconnect the phone and remove the SIM. Voilà.
