    Hi my friend got an iPhone 3G because their friend cancelled the service and didn't want the phone anymore. And upon upgrading to 3.01 iTunes says:

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

    There is no service with the phone and there is no SIM card. I have SIM cards laying around but there not for iPhones. So now I have a brick because it won't go past the no SIM card installed popup.

    Just pop any AT&T sim card in there, it should work.

    I think they'll sell you a SIM at an AT&T Store for $10.
