    Hey guys. I just did a fresh install of ios 5 and preserved the baseband at 2.10.4. Which I plan to unlock with a Gevey sim that should be here in a few days. Right now I can't access the phone because it wants a sim with no pin lock to activate. Is there anyway to bypass the sim activation?
    Could I use a friends micro att sim? Would that mess with their account? Could I buy a cheap att go micro sim for like $15? Has anyone Hactivated with Sn0wbreeze? Would that work?

    One more question I have. If I do not get into the phone before my gevey arrives, how am I to set it up? You seem to need access to get the card working in the first place, making an emergency call and turning airplane mode on and off a few times. Anyone been trough this?

    Thanks so much everyone for th help n

    Do a search for hacktivation, I remember seeing that it's one of the options of the new Redsn0w that does iOS 5. If Sn0wbreeze also does iOS 5 then you can do the hacktivation there.

    Just go buy the appropriate blank sim from anywhere, it doesn't have to be associated to an active account/contract. It just has to search for the signal, when it get's a bar it'll activate in iTunes. It wont make phone calls or anything but as long as the sim is the correct sim for the locked iPhone carrier, it'll activate it.
