    Hi:

    I know you have to upgrade to 3.0 before running redsn0w. I upgraded to 3.0 in iTunes but now the phone is stuck in emergency mode (with "No SIM card installed" message) and if I connect it to iTunes it tells me:

    "iTunes cannot activate your iPhone because the SIM card is not inserted or SIM pin is required"

    I do not have an AT&T sim card to activate.

    Question:
    1. How can I tell if I have actually upgraded to 3.0 if I can't get into the phone past the "no SIM card" message?
    2. If I run redsn0w will it activate the phone?
    3. Should I restore and reinstall the firmware from iTunes first? Should I do a full on restore with DFU mode for that?

    There is an option if you are using an "official carrier" if you don't check that, then it will "hacktivate" the phone for you. :)
