    Question Can I activate my iphone 4s without a sim tried with just wifi didnt wrk

    Hi all just need some help,
    Is there a way to activate my Iphone 4s without the sim as I have just received my Iphone 4s I was told it was on Vodafone but I don't have a Vodafone sim and I tried to activate the handset via my WiFi but it just says activation failed insert sim and try again. Im a noobie to this so please excuse the lack of knowledge with apple products.

    You do need a sim for the carrier to which it is locked - or any sim if it is unlocked.

    You can find all the info on jailbreaking over in the Jailbreak forum. Everything you need to know is there.

    No jailbreak for 4S on 6.0.1 yet. What u need is the phone unlocked to work on T-Mobile not jailbroken.

    Like we've already said, NO JB for i4S. That's for i4 and below who are on 6.0.1
