    Does anyone know how to bypass the iPhone 4 activation screen?Is that possible? Will it be?
    I'm asking you cause I "hacktivated" my iPhone 2G a while ago just by jailbreaking it. NEED HELP

    Right now the only iPhone 4 compatible jailbreak is userland, which is far too high level for hacktivation. Until a jailbreak becomes available that is lower level, it won't be possible.

    If it's asking for 4 digits of SSN and zip code, it cannot be done.
    If something other, get a sim card (borrow or buy from eBay) for the carrier who issued the phone (use Model # and Google to figure this out)

    actually, I'm going to buy an iPhone, but now i'm living in this crappy place, called brazil, im not gonna buy it unlocked, imma unlock it myself, just like I did with my old iphone. when you turn it on for the first time, it asks you to sync it with itunes, which will activate your iphone. but to activate you need the original SIM card, which I will not have. So, all I want to know is a way to bypass the "activation screen" and then unlock it.

    I told you and you just typed it.
    Get an official sim (borrow or buy) from the carrier who issued the phone.

    ok, I get it. But isn't it going to ask me to fill something up (name,social security, all your Att info.) which I will not have. ?

    If it's the correct sim card for phone issuer, it should just activate it.

    Lol:)
    Alrighty then.

    No, just the first time the iPhone 4 gets activated out of the box. After that any AT&T sim will do. Even old inactive sims.
