    I bought a new iPhone 3g and I gave my old iPhone 1st gen to a friend to use as an iPod touch. When he restored the iPhone, iTunes is promoting him for activation and has the phone locked. I seem to remember hearing that you could still use the old iPhone's iPod features if you upgraded to an 3G. If this is true, how do you get past the activation screen?

    By not resetting it? :rolleyes:

    Check out the new 'pwn' tool spreading around. I have no link because I don't use it, but google or another forum member will know.

    It should work. I gave my old iPhone to my daughter. She plugged it into her iMac - did a complete erase and install of 2.0 and everything works perfect.

    No problems at all. I even still have the sim card in it. It just says "No Service" on the top left corner. She can do everything with it except make phone calls. She likes it better than the iTouch because it has a camera.
