    How do I activate a iPhone 3g running 4.2.1 Firmware without a sim card?

    I can't even get to the home screen it tells me to put a sim card in and I don't have one except for tmobile!

    My advice to you is to stop creating so many new threads. Start searching through google and the site.

    Since you have a 3G, why don't just downgrade it to 3.1.2, the jailbreak it with blackra1n, this should activates your phone and by pass the emergency call screen.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Pwnage can create a hactivated ipsw.
    But like said above you got plenty of more things to learn and research before going further. Help yourself and learn how to search and research to find answers.
    Trust me it will come handy in life.
    Don't depend on others to hand you or do all the legwork for you.

    if you read through those links, you will find the exact thing you are looking for. sorry my response wasn't on a silver platter or denoted with a neon sign.

    If you're a windows or mac user, you can download Sn0wbreeze and download your proper firmware by doing a google search of "Felix Bruns Firmware" (I'm too lazy to find the link). Create a hactivated IPSW and shift+restore to it with iTunes while the phone is in pwned DFU state.
