    Hi guys,
    i got from my friend from France a locked iPhone 4S. Is there any chance to activate it without a France SIM card or with some another one but not France? I know that I can jailbroke it now but firstly I have to activate it. Is this possible??? I am really desperate :(

    I don't think there's anything you can do if it's locked. Is there anyway you can return it?

    No, nothing you can do right now.
    Why did you buy it in the first place knowing you wont be able to use it?
    There's plenty of unlocked iphones available.

    He probably means not activated.

    Which is why he would need a sim from the carrier the phone is sim-"locked" to.

    not necessarily dodgy, just not thinking when buying or receiving a phone.

    You are too trusting towards an unknown, new forum user.

    It will be the end of you

    Go to ebay and find a sim from the carrier it's locked to.
    Purchase it.
    Put it in your phone.
    Now you're past the activation screen and you are the proud owner of an ipod touch
    You know you can't software unlock it, right?

    Coming from a relative newcomer...

    Although newbies frequently ask questions before reading it's still considered common courtesy not to call somebody a fraud in a first reaction.

    Unfortunately you missed that point...
