    Treading into deep enemy waters...

    Bought an iphone for my girlfriend.

    It'd locked to rogers.

    I bought an unlock code for it.

    But, I apparently can't set it up without putting a valid rogers sim into it.

    I only have my WIND sim.

    How can I use the unlock code I get if I cant use the phone past the "you cant use this without a sim card" stage?\

    I tried connecting it to itunes, but that tells me to use the sim card too.

    Do you really need to connect it to a sim network to be able to even use it past the setup?

    You need to install a SIM card. It may or may not accept the code using a SIM card that's not from Rogers.

    I only have my WIND Sim, no rogers one. Anyway to get past the setup and into the actual phone.

    Like a BlackBewrry, Windows Phone, Android or BBOS phone would allow you to?

    Insert the SIM you currently have, if it'll fit, and then see what happens.

    That was the first thing I did. It tells me it doesnt work pretty much and that the phone is locked. I called apple and they said I have to use a Rogers Sim first.

    I dont have one. There has to be a way to just use the phone, I mean all others OS's can, why not Apple?

    The phone stays locked until activation to discourage theft. Generally any Rodgers sim would do, and they can be bought on Amazon/eBay etc.
