    Hi guys, I'm really stuck on this one... Is there any way to activate an iPhone 3G (I think it's running 3.1.3) without the SIM card it came with?

    I don't have an AT&T SIM card, and my friend lost the one it came with, it's not easy to find one in my country, so is not like I just go purchase one...

    I'm stuck in the connect to iTunes screen, and when I plug it, it just says either 'There is no SIM card installed in the iPhone you are attepting to activate.' Or I get 'The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported.' using a SIM card from a different carrier.

    Any way to get past that screen/activate the phone?

    you cannot use this unless you are currently on a jailbroken device, you better go to ebay and buy a sim for cheap, OR, you try to get to the 3.1.2 version which can be hacktivated using BlackRa1n.

    You cannot use Snowbreeze because you used Spirit.
    You cannot use Blackra1n to hactivate because Blackra1n only works of 3.1.2.
    You have no option , except get an official sim card from Ebay.

    Hey, I just notice you have a 3G, follow this guide
    How to Jailbreak 3.1.3 iPhone 3G & iPod Touch 1G/2G Windows & OS X
    It will jailbreak, hactivate and you can unlock it from Cydia with Ultrasn0w 0.9.3

    What you need : Redsn0w 0.9.4 , 3.1.2 ipsw to point to it when running Redsn0w.
