    Welcome to iMore! Well, there are two different answers to this question depending on what kind of phone you have:

    CDMA models can be activated without a SIM through iTunes. Connect to a Mac/PC via USB and launch iTunes to complete the process.

    GSM models cannot bypass activation. You'll need to have a SIM in the phone until activation is complete.
