My phone went into the searching, connect to itunes mode and when i hook it up itunes give's me an error that that says "itunes cannot activate your iphone because the SIM card is not inserted or a sim pin is required" I don't have a sim pin and the sim card works in my friends iphone just fine. I tried to reset it and still nothing. I can't get a appointment at the apple store for 3 days. Can anyone help me? Thanks. Btw The phone says a restore is needed and i have restored the phone so i don't know what else i can do.
