Okay, so here's the lowdown. I returned my iPhone 3GS to Apple and they made me return the SIM card as well. So naturally, I had to go to AT&T and get a new SIM card and re-activate my iPhone 3G. The SIM card they gave me at AT&T doesn't look like the SIM cards I'm used to seeing... the back of the SIM (where the connectors are) is a gold color. I'm not talking about the connectors themselves (those are obviously gold) but I'm talking about the ink color on the card is gold/orange. Anyways... on to the good stuff... So I installed 3.1 on my first generation iPhone (not my iPhone 3G) and instead of doing an update to keep my "hacktivation"... I did a normal restore (iTunes 8.2). Then, naturally, I got the pink screen of death telling me to connect to iTunes. I had no SIM card in it at the time so the only card I had around was the one from my activated iPhone 3G. Now, I KNOW this has never worked in the past, but I decided to try it anyways. I figured it was going to connect to iTunes and go to the activation screen (like the screen you get when you first get your iPhone and activate it for the first time) but instead of that screen coming up, the iPhone activated by itself and I have full service! I can text, I can call and I've got data! Please note, my first generation iPhone has NEVER been activated before without hacks. Also, I set it up as a new phone and didn't revert to a backup. What's going on here? Do I have a magic SIM card?
