    Go to AT&T store and have them give you a new sim and activate it for you. Then sync it with iTunes.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    They should be able to figure it out and tie the serial number to your simcard.
    Tell them you cant chase the seller. Their job is to get it to work. Talk to some other rep that knows what they're doing.

    I've done this. The AT&T person was wrong. Go to a corporate AT&T store if possible, or get a different person at the store you went to.

    By the way. Make sure you enable the ability to pm or email you on the forums. I couldn't send you an email.
