I would have thought this issue would be addressed 20x here, but a search yielded very little concrete info. I secure erased my 3G to get it ready for sale. In my for sale ad, I said something to the effect of "if you want an iPhone 3G with no contract", this is your phone... Now I'm wondering if that's impossible. I know AT&T is selling contract free phones, but will they honor a new activation without a contract? What if my buyer is not currently with AT&T? What if they are with AT&T? Lastly, after wiping the phone, it needs to be activated. This makes it tricky to show someone from Craigslist that the phone indeed works. Without jailbreaking, is there any way to get to a home screen without activation? gracias.
