    I searched, and saw only a bunch of unanswered threads about this. I'm hoping for better luck. I got a buyer for my 3GS which i advertised as jailbroken and unlocked. Didn't bother to actually do it until tonight, the night before I meet this potential buyer.

    So, I basically installed the apple version of 4.0.1, then went to jailbreakme.com to jailbreak, and install cydia, pdf patch, and ultrasn0w. All is fine except that everytime I reboot I get a "waiting for activation" message. I can't test, but I assume a tmobile sim would work.

    I'm guessing I should have used pwnagetool to upgrade to 4.0.1, but now I think it's too late.

    Any help, please? I've got 12 hours before I see this guy.

    Don't worry about that waiting for activation message. Just click okay. Once a sim card is put in it should go away.

    well clearly this question has no answer. crap. I guess I'll hope it goes away when he sticks his sim in.

    Well i stuck the AT&T sim from my work issued blackberry in the iphone and it no longer gives me the waiting for activated prompt. So I guess that's the ticket. Not sure if a non AT&T sim would activate it, but at this point I guess I don't care.
