How to Activate Iphone 4 without Original Sim Card

In the post JailbreakMe Pre-Requiste’s and Jailbreak Issues I have mentioned that users will require original SIM card to activate with itunes after jailbreaking their iPhone . Many users expressed their concern over this SIM Issue which has now been resolved .

If you want to activate the iPhone 4 without original supported SIM card, here is very simple solution provided by Sherif Hashim who helps the iPhone Dev Team in various Post-jailbreak issues.

** Tip : Standard sized SIM cards are not supported by Iphone 4 , so you will have to cut it down to Micro. Read More about this .

Only a couple of days back Hashim said iPhone users will require simple Phone Book SIM in order to activate their jailbroken device , but in this twitter update , he said that it can be done by an Hactivation patch.
