    Friend of mine has a Telus 3GS, which isn't activated.
    He doesn't have a Telus sim, as he is on Fido
    It seems like it's stuck at the Emergency Call screen, so when swiping it just brings up the keypad.

    How can you get it out of that mode, and to the homescreen so we can find out the FW and Jailbreak accordingly?

    Or *must* the phone be activated with a Telus sim first, before we can do anything?

    no idea what firmware, since we can't get to the homescreen to see settings

    my idea is, since my friend is on windows

    use sn0wbreeze to jb/hacktivate an IPSW and update/restore the phone with that...

    dunno if it'll work
