Re: Iphone Activation help
If it is stuck at the activation screen it hasnt been unlocked. The Iphone requires a 2 year agreement to even use the phone. So if you thought you were buying an unlocked version you were conned an unlocked and activated Iphone wouldn't even show an activation screen. If you want to read up on how to unlock and activate your Iphone I suggest readding the helpful guides and free help located here. Clicky

For using this method to bypass iCloud by yourself you will need:
For decoding the icloud lock you must have a locked iPhone device and a neverlocked device same model only for unlocking time not for your self.

Apple can help you to reset your login, when you enter the correct password that belongs to your Apple ID. It will be partially on the screen. If you really messed up, setting up security, and lost unlock code and your Apple ID password. Only Apple can help. For that you have to take iPhone, invoice and prove of your identity (Passport) to the Apple store and hope they will unlock your iPhone. With iOS7 Apple made a very good security system. And while setting up the iPhone and the security, you are warned several times what to do to make sure you and only you could enter the system. Whatever you is told there is no bypass for the Apple security system.
Jailbreak-in simple terms, is modifying the software of your iPhone to maximize its functionality, bypassing some restrictions from Apple, like being able to install apps which are not approved by Apple. Now let's talk about Unlock. Almost all iPhones came locked with a certain carrier (SIM), for instance, AT&T in the US and Fido/Rogers in Canada. That means, if you put other SIM card on the iPhone, its won't be recognized and you won't have any cellular signal. For somebody to be able to use another SIM on his iPhone, the iPhone must first be unlocked, otherwise, like i said, the phone functionality of the iPhone won't work. Also, everytime you restore the iPhone, you're gonna need to have the legit SIM to be able to activate it, without activation, you won't be able to use the iPhone. Now, the Spirit JB. The new 3.1.3 Spirit JB does not support any unlocking tool. That means, even if you've jailbroken your iPhone already, you still can't use it coz you still need to activate it with a legit SIM. If you're in the US, try to borrow some AT&T SIM card from any of your friends just to activate your iPhone. If you don't know how to replace your iPhone SIM, go to the link below for the guide. http://www.fixya.com/support/r4701614-replace_iphone_sim_card Also, go over to my blog and read more iPhone / iPod touch tips and recommendations. You can contact me better/faster thru my blog. ...
First option is to put a legit sim card. - this will be a problem if you bought your iPhone from another country.
2nd option is to jailbreak and unlock your phone. - if you've upgraded your iPhone to version 3.1.3, there's a great chance that you won't be able to do this option.
3rd option is to use a turbo sim which you can find on eBay. check out some items i've searched for you. - this option will work only if you have 2.30 or lower iPhone software version.
other than those 3, i don't know anything more.
