My girlfriend has a first-gen iPhone that she bought from a friend and had been using without a SIM as an iPod for the time being until she gets out of her other contract to activate it. She just upgraded to the 2.1 firmware and now it says to insert a SIM and connect to iTunes to activate. Any suggestions on getting it working again without the SIM without hacking it? Maybe just downgrade the firmware? Thanks!
iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
