    I tried looking for the answer to this, but didn't see the exact one so feel free to flame and point me in the right direction if you'd like. I was just wondering if it was possible to activate the phone using the SIM from a prepaid AT&T phone?

    I was checking the warranty status on my phone and since it stats it is unactivated, does that mean unless I activate it using AT&T that it will never show as activated in Apples eyes? I plan to use Tmobile if/when the 1.1.2 are able to be SIM unlocked, but would like to at least try out the phone features to see if it is even a keeper. I know the trick used to exist when activating where you could get a gocard, but last I heard that was patched up.

    Just JailBreak the 1.1.2 phone with the concieted software.

    find the instructions in this website.

    then pop in your PRE-PAID sim

    u should be able to make calls and everything else

    Jailbreak is done, just wasn't sure if it could be added and activated on prepaid. I don't have one yet, but might be worth the investment if they are as cheap as other places.

    dude i dont want EDGE anyways. I was planning on disabling edge through services.app so i dont get charged like crazy. All i want to do is get the iphone on pay as you go (the prepaid sim) not the monthly payments in pick your plan.

    So what do i have to if i want to use a preapid sim in my iphone?

    I have a OTB 1.1.2. Do i just jailbreak and put in the prepaid sim? can someone confirm this as working?
