    Unlocking just allows you to activate with other SIM cards besides the one it's locked to. It's not bypassing the activation screen. What exactly are you trying to do?

    There are some unlock SIM modifiers, like Gevey. They perform the same task as IMEI.

    You need a SIM with a service your phone will accept to get past that activation screen. I don't believe "hacktivation" was ever worked out for the 5. That was a software fix to get around the activation screen.

    I had the same issue, I bought a used iPhone 4S AT&T iOS 7 and it was in activation mode and since it was not unlocked it wouldn't activate with the sim card that I had from Solavei, so I purchased a new sim card from AT&T on E-bay for $2.49 and put in on it to pass the activation screen and I was able to use all the features on the phone with wi fi until I can unlock it.
