You may remember Sherif Hashim as the guy who brought the iOS 4 baseband unlocking for iPhone users. Now Hashim is back with yet another trick that will allow users to activate their iPhone 3G/3GS or even iPhone 4 without having to actually use your original SIM card.
This six minute video embedded below will take you through the entire process. Please note that if you are trying this on your iPhone 4, you will still require to trim your original SIM card to the micro-SIM size in order to complete the process.
“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 simcard will do the trick, no need for programmable sims, all those phonebook sims used to save ur contacts and transfer them have a universal ICCIDs preprogrammed so they all work”
