    I bought an iPhone on the street for really cheap. I got it for 50 dollars, but it had no sim card. I currently have cell phone service with Sprint, so I don't have a sim card. I have gotten this phone jailbroken (or so I think) but it gets stuck loading on the apple screen (or pineapple screen or winpwn screen) Can i get it working without a sim card and use it similar to an ipod touch? Also , what am I doing wrong that causes it to not boot into anything? I seem to have jail broken it and restored it numerous times

    Try to restore it thru itunes and redo the jailbreak.
    Was it starting up when you first bought it?

    As i feel u have to rejailbreak it using the sim card and then unlock it with yellowsnow to use any other sim.

    Did you try to find the real owner before you wiped it?

    Is it a 3G or edge iphone?
    If its 3G you'll have to use an att sim card when it first boots up into itunes.
    Just for a minute, after its activated you'd be good.
