My brother has an iphone that came without a sim card (he won it the lucky bugger). Unfortunately he entered a password and forgot it, and so it has become locked. The only solution I could see was to restore it using iTunes. I've done this but now iTunes says it "cannot activate your iphone because the sim card is not inserted or a sim pin is required". What sim card? No sim card has been used with this phone yet. The iphone says "no sim card installed -- insert a valid sim with no pin lock to active iphone". Would temporarily inserting a sim card allow us to activate it? I cant see why we should have to activate it.
