    Hey guys hows it going?


    Well, as many with a non AT&T/T-Mobile, etc. contract, I was really hoping the iPod Touch would be the iPhone without the phone. But the Touch has just really dissapointed me all around. Yeah the screen problem has been fixed, but the touch just seems like a lost cause to me.

    So now I'm looking into buying an iPhone, and just simply looking to bypass activation and just use all of its great features; except for the phone of course.

    BUT, being the idiot that I am, i updated my iTunes without even realising that some people seem to be having problems and some iPhones have been bricked. But then I hear that just bypassing activation is safe, so whats the deal here? Can it still be done safely?

    Thanks for all the help guys, just trying to make sure :cool:

    I am in your situation but I haven't bought a touch or iphone yet. I think that the independence program is ok with the latest itunes but the real problem is that as soon as apple updates iphone firmware to 1.1.1 which is any minute now...many think fake activation is not going to work. the ipod touch so far is "unhackable" and many think the latest iphone will have similar firmware. so if you can get a current firmware iphone asap, do it. I am afraid to order online as my phone may be too new and I can't activate it.

    i'm using 7.4.1

    i've never been hesitant to upgrade software. but now that there's the potential of a bricked iphone, i'll definitely wait a while on any updates.

    Remember, even if you pull it off, you may never be able to upgrade iPhones or iTunes again. Somebody usually develops a workaround at some point, but they could still break something at any time.
