    Discussing jailbroken devices is forbidden by the terms of service.

     

    Find an answer elsewhere or buy a new phone.

    It sounds easy for you, find an answer elsewhere or buy a new phone. Will you do that for yourself If your phone doesn't work?

    Why is it forbidded? This is a free country.

     

    I think that you can go back to the dealer and asks him/her if they can activate for you. They should understand how to upgrade jailbroken iPhones. Hope this answer helps.

    It might be a free country, but this is a private forum, with its own rules and regulations. The TOS which we all (including you) agreed to, do not allow for discussing hacks and jailbreaks, including possible solutions to the problem the original poster has.

     

    Its pretty simple to find help elsewhere. Ever heard of Google? Or as you say, take it back to the hacker that sold it to him.

    Hacking or jailbreaking the phone violates the EULA. You're free to do it. It's not a crime. It does, however, void any warranty and forfeit your right to support either from Apple or on these Apple sponsored forums.

     

    I wouldn't be daft enough to hack or jailbreak my phone in the first place.
