    I just bought an iphone 2g. When I hook it up itunes it ask's me to activate it. It is a full avtivation process with att involved. I have never had to do that with any other iphone. How do I get around this to get the phone working. My Sim is good and works in a 3g that I didn't have to regester to get going. I would like to jailbreak too but I am also having problems with that. I believe it is 3.13 os but cant get into the phone to check.

    Thanks

    All iPhones have to be activated before using. If ur sim is already active on ur 3G, then just insert it into the 2G and complete the activation and you'll be good to go.

    Thanks for the fast reply!! I completely understand what you are saying here but I never even had to do this with my 3g to register it

    Wonder if the difference in data plans for the 2G v 3G makes a difference?

    Yeah Im not sure if it does or not. I don't have the data plan at all that's why I buy used iphones so I dont have to have one. That is one of my concerns if I register this phone this way will att tack on a data plan?

    Yes, bc ALL iPhone require a data plan. Even if someone activated for u, AT&T will know you're using an iPhone and add th data plan to ur line.
