Question A Question About ACTIVATING my iPhone

Now, I know that I can't unlock the phone yet to work on my Rogers account but I can however activate it right? I did that 1 click activation thing on some website and it in fact worked. I can upload songs to the iPhone along with pics and the like. But I can't seem to get my WiFi to work. Has anyone used the WiFi yet with their iPhone? If so what did you do to get it to work?

Thanks!

Nick

Even if you have a U.S. credit card and managed to activate it on AT&T, they would brick it after 2 months of roaming. They don't like people roaming for to long.

I don't want to use it as a phone. I just want the WiFi to work for the time being.

Did you activate wi-fi or turn it on?? You can definitely use everything except for the phone and you tube.

My wifi works great after hactivating it. I'm in downtown Toronto. I didn't do anything to get it work--it just did

Settings > wifi > choose a network

Man I'm sooo jealous My WiFi is turned on but I can't connect to my router here at home. I'll be going downtown tonight and see if I can connect there. I'll let you know if it works.

Thanks!

Further, just for the record if you activate on a GoPhone (prepaid) plan, you can't roam in Canada anyway, although everything else will work just fine (including YouTube). Of course, the advantage of the GoPhone activation is that you can also cancel it later, since you're not on a contract.

That's the more legitimate way to activate it, since the hacktivations are likely to be cancelled out by future iTunes updates.

When they update Itunes again can you not choice to update until they find the hack for that? Also what hack did you guys use i am getting mine tomorrow and use Anderson Hack using the Terminal Plist. Thanks.

Yes, you could certainly avoid updating the version of iTunes, but of course you'd be missing out on newer features and bugfixes in iTunes and possibly firmware updates for the iPhone itself (also adding newer features to the iPhone).

As it stands, iTunes 7.3.1 will already invalidate all of the hacks that I've personally tried. I tried the original DVD Jon activation server (using Parallels), as well as the Anderson hack, mostly for research purposes (since I had already in fact activated the iPhone legitimately).

These hacks all prevent YouTube from working (it will fail to connect to the YouTube service, even over WiFi), and iTunes 7.3.1 will either fail to detect the iPhone completely, or detect it as "corrupted" (and thereby want to restore it).

Well I guess i will wait to download that one until i use the hack. Just a quick question with Anderson do you have your Iphone connected to your computer the whole time or in step 5 and 6 which state5.) Now make sure your iPhone is connected and you quit iTunes

6.) To activate your iPhone type the follwoing command into the flashing cursor (note that there are two dashes before activate):

Thanks.
