    Ok i have a unique problem. i was on ATT iphone 4 4.2.1. My company switched me to verizon and i sent my iphone to my dad in india. I restored the phone before sending to not send him all my data.

    as everyone knows i4 with newer basebands cant be unlocked.

    The phone still has my inactive att sim in it.

    questions is, is there anyway he can use it to make facetime calls? since its voip it should be able to do it.

    any thoughts. i know its not activated post restore. but if i jailbreak it will it work.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    It needs an active official sim to activate facetime.
    It sends a text to apples servers to do that.
