    You can either re-activate it using itunes by using your AT&T phone number if your an official user or you can jailbreak it.

    I would download either the 2.2.1 firmware or the new 3.0 and use Pwnage Tool to jailbreak it. That will allow you to get passed the emergency mode your in and allow you to use it as basically an ipod touch.

    Use google for instructions on how to use pwnage tool and jailbreak.
