unable to activate iPhone 2g without original sim card
I would like to use my old iphone 2g as an iTouch but have lost the origianl activated sim card. I have contacted AT&T / Apple support and they have only one solution: "use it as a paper weight". I kid you not - that was their choice of words. Anyone have a suggestion to get this old but great piece of technology back sothat I can use it as an itouch?

An ordinary sim card will actually not work for the 2g iphone, it will work for all other generations, but the original iphone 2g actually requires the original sim card for activation. Extremely frustrating, but the only other solution i have found at this point is JB.

My Granddaughter tried to update her 2g. She did not know the update would screw the phone up.
She was using a sim card from a non smart at&t phone. I tried to restore phone via iTunes but once done I could get no further because I could not activate the phone. I had no way to determine the os version of the phone. I then tried jail breaking it using blackra1n but the process would never complete. Perhaps I did not have the correct version of blackra1n. Would appreciate any help in getting beyond this problem.
