Previous Owner ?
I bought a 4 a while ago. Its a Bell phone and i was using it on Fido with the SIM adapter. The adapter was giving me some issues with lost signal.
Anyway went to bell to activate the phone only it has the previous owners info.
Her the stupid part I deleted our back and forth emails so i lost the contact info. Bell will not give out the name or contact info.
Any way around this?

What is missing here?
I've never had a problem activating an iPhone after getting it from someone else.
You have the device in hand, you sign up for Bell's service, they give you a sim card, put it in the device and then you're on your way.

Like everyone is saying, you go to Bell, you sign up for their service and get yourself a free 3G phone...you swap the sim card over to the iPhone and connect it with iTunes and voila, you have an iPhone with Bell now...then you call them and say "Can you add the data plan for me please? Thanks!"
Where's the confusion?

To add too...you could probably get another iPhone 4 under the $199 new contract price, keep the new iPhone and sell the old one and still make out with profit since the iPhone 4 is WELL over $200 used still.
Are you trying to stay out of a contract? Are you trying to use pre paid or something?

I just walked into a Bell store, bought a microsim and they activated the microsim and I was done.
I even went to the apple store after and they transferred the warranty info from the previous owners name to mine (without asking for proof or anything).
If it is a Bell iPhone there SHOULD be no issues activating it on Bell.
