    Hello! I'm a newbie to this forum and a newbie in the world of iphones.

    I just got an unlocked iphone 4s and I have 2 questions with regards to activation.

    1. does the micro SIM card need to be inserted into the phone before activating it or will it activate without the SIM?

    2. do I need to be connected to the Internet when activating my Iphone?

    Hope you can help me guys on this...

    Yes, you need an installed SIM to activate the phone

    Yes, you need an internet connection to activate or a wired connection to iTunes
