Infamous iPhone hacker Sherif Hashem has successfully activated iPhone 4, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS without the original SIM card to which the SIM is locked and has posted a new video. For iPhone 4, you need to cut the SIM to a microSIM size. It is important to note that it doesn’t unlock the iPhone, but it just activates it. This means that you can get past one of the biggest pains you first get an iPhone: Hacktivating it; otherwise you’re stuck on the emergency screen until you do so. You need to jailbreak your iPhone first using spirit userland jailbreak and then unlock it with ultrasn0w. Sherif is the same person who found the exploit to unlock 05.12.01, 05.13.04 baseband running iOS 4. Check out the video after the break!
The video clearly shows an iPhone does not have any original SIM installed which he is trying to activate. Initially, Sherif tries to install Vodafone SIM, but being locked to AT&T carrier only, he gets a probable message that the SIM is not supported. Just check out the complete video on how he activates iPhone without original SIM tied to AT&T.
Instead of telling everyone who hasn’t got the original SIM that activation of the iphone is easy using a phonebook SIM card, I made this video to show u all how it works, Use any phonebook SIM card, they are there in radioshak, mobile phone shops or any mobile tech moles , any phone book SIM card will do the trick, no need for programmable SIMs, all those phonebook SIMs used to save your contacts and transfer them have a universal ICCIDs preprogrammed so they all work
