    The Phone was box sealed and delivered without SIM card. I brought a card at ebay.

    The phone was sold via Apples US online store.

    i can guarantee you that this kind of sim can activate your iphone including iphone4...tried and tested already...
    Maybe - but not my Iphone 4. Trust me, I used a lot of time on this issue. I dont think this activation cards can open phones brought from Apple US. Please read the discussion in this forum. I am not the only one with this problem.

    Where is your phone brought in the US? There are 2 kinds of Iphone 4's in the US, one that is bought through Apple and one that is bought through another party like AT&T or Bestbuy. The iphone 4's that come direct from any Apple store are lock-ed to the original account holders ID (SS# etc), the other kind are not locked in the same way. I dont think the Phonebook card can activate the phone if it is locked to the sellers account.

    Please see posting #123. Kiba283s video shows exactly what happens. I tried with two different activation cards same result.

    I will guess so. There are a lot of videos showing that the activation cards are working, but there seems to be a problem with the phones from Apple US.

    This I don't understand - why not get the info from your "Uncle" and just enter it? Unless he had no intention of honoring the 2yr contract he signed with AT&T, that should have got the phone up and running.
    Exactly - he doesn't want to sign up with AT&T, he just wanted the phone and was waiting for the JB to release so he could use it on Verizon.


    M8 please tell me did you get SIM card inside iPhone 4 or you had to get pay as go SIM card? Was your iPhone box sealed or opened?
    It came with a SIM Card.

    I have a 32gb 3gs just restored to ios 4.0.1. Went out and found the DITS phonebook sim in the video. I can confirm that it DOES NOT WORK to activete the phone as advertised. I have 2 of these sims, neither worked.

    So basically, a iphone 4 that was purchased by someone who resigned up for another 2 year contract, and the phone is tied to their AT&T account, with the zip code and SS# screen in itunes. It has to be activated by them. There is no way around it?

    Now that there is a jailbreak for the iPhone 4 I decided to restore it and see which SIMs would activate it.

    I'm in the U.S. my iPhone 4 was purchased in the U.S. and is still under contract with AT&T. The phone was purchased directly from AT&T.

    I restored the iPhone 4 with an inactive AT&T SIM in it and it activated it.

    I restored the iPhone 4 with an inactive Cingular SIM in it and it activated it.

    I restored the iPhone 4 with an O2 (Best Buy) SIM in it and it activated it.

    Since I have multiple iPhone 4s I plan on canceling the contract on one and retesting all these SIMs to see if a contract has anything to do with it.

    One will be canceled on the 18th, I'll try to update this with results.


    EDIT---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Canceled one of my iPhone 4s and it says no service now. Restored with 4.0.1 and a Best Buy O2 SIM installed, then an inactive Cingular SIM installed, and a different AT&T SIM installed, and they all activated the phone just fine with the use of TinyUmbrella.
