Just put a "bogus" sim in the phone. It doesnt have to be an active sim. Any network sim will work too.

SOURCE: Is my iphone blocked ?

Is your sim card csm or cdma? I'm not sure if the iphone can handle both, but I know it works with GSM.

If you have a gsm sim card, then you just need to unlock it. Of course, Apple won't let certain carriers use their phones legally. So you have to unlock it. I don't remember the exact process, but there's a good program to help you through it step by step.

Go to this site and read up before trying to do anything technical with your phone (link)

There's a lot of informtion there, so make sure to read up to find what's best for you. You'll need to know the firmware your phone is using 1.1.4 to 2.2 you need to know. The site I posted should have all the info for you.

Again, if your sim card is gsm, it should be no problem to use your sim.

Alright, good luck.

Samsung password reset

Im assuming its a samsung phone
Samsung cell phones come with many security features.
In addition to the common feature of preventing calls after a period of inactivity, some Samsung phones also allow you to prevent others' use of your phone's SIM chip and access to your files.
One password unlocks the various locks, except for two other passwords used for the SIM chip. The syntax of the menu items to click to reset a password differ somewhat between Samsung models but you can figure out roughly how to apply instructions for one phone to another.

Lock the phone from making calls by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings" (or "More" and then "Security"), and "Phone Lock" or "Device Lock."
Change the password by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Change Password." Then enter a new password.

Set the phone to work only with the current SIM chip by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "SIM Lock."
Enter a new password when prompted.

Prevent unauthorized use of your SIM card by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "PIN Lock." Type a new PIN when prompted.
Prohibit access to your files, messages and contact list by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Privacy Lock."
Enter the password from Step 1 when prompted to unlock access.
Reset the file lock/messages/contact password by resetting the phone lock password, as in
Step 1

Have you tried visiting twitter on different computer and different internet provider ? If not please try it first. IF you are accessing it in a office network there is a possibility twitter was blocked by your network administrator.

Cannot access the internet or down load any apps onto my pay as you go i phone3g

First go to the Settings and turn on Cellular Data (as well as 3G if you wish to use 3G network). Next connect your iPhone to the iTunes and let it download cellular data file from Apple servers. If this doesn't help, contact your mobile operator to activate your internet.

IPhone EDGE issue

Access to edge or other data services depend on the isp, not the cell phone manufacturer. For example, if you unlocked your phone and put a tmobile sim in it, you would have to get data settings from tmobile to be able to get the internet. You need to talk to the tech support people. And of course you can use the wifi on the apple phone for internet access.
