Sherif Hashim has found a way to activate iPhone without the original SIM card. He has posted a video on how to activate iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G without official carrier’s SIM Card. Sherif Hashim is the same guy who found the exploit to unlock baseband 05.12.01 and baseband 05.13.04.
Sherif Hashim has discovered that you can activate iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G with a PhoneBook SIM card. A PhoneBook SIM card is used to transfer your phonebook contacts from one phone to another. You can purchase PhoneBook SIM card from Radioshack, Mobile Phone Shops, or online. iPhone 4 users need to cut the SIM to micro-SIM card size.
Activate iPhone Without the Original SIM
IMHO, this is an excellent find by Sherif because some of the latest jailbreak tools like Spirit requires your iPhone to be activated first. With Spirit almost ready to jailbreak iPhone 4, this find will surely help many unofficial carrier users out there.
Congratz Sherif for another great discovery.
