    It says

    "waiting for activation"

    with no service at the top.

    But the sim is totally legit and should activate in seconds.

    Whats going on?

    Did you try "reset network settings" in the settings app?

    Yeah 2 times.
    This makes me sad.

    Because when i restore it,
    and then connect to itunes

    I get

    "waiting for activation. This could take a while"

    I have 2 iphones,
    If i put my sim in 1,
    I get service.

    In the other,
    no service

    Mmm, yer that sounds strange - maybe a hardware issue by the sounds of what you describe above.

    Have you tried restoring again, this will flash your baseband again upon restoring, your present bb could be corrupted...hope this is a solution.

    Where did you buy your phone? It could be locked to a non-US carrier, in which case a legit AT&T sim will not activate.

    Try and switch another AT&T sim card, if it works, then the Sim Card is faulty. If it doesn't, i am pretty sure it a a hardware problem on your Iphone....

    HOPE THIS IS THE REAL SOULUTION...hehe..
