    Hey guys, I have an iPhone 4 on 4.3.3 jailbroken with a gevey.

    I want to try iOS 5, but how would I activate the iPhone without an offical sim card or jailbreaking the phone?

    It's early, so it's very possible, and even highly likely that I'm wrong, but I think u just restore to 5.0, and go thru the prompts on wifi, it will try to activate, idk what will actually happen if it doesn't activate as I've not tried.

    I met getting passed the activation screen.

    I said screw it and went to walmart. I bought a GoPhone, cheapest was $15 bucks and I cut down the sim card.

    Voila! It works. :D

    Maybe I'll return the phone itself since I don't use it.
