I bought the iphone off a friend of mine as it was disabled and he already has another phone... i restored the iphone using itunes which worked fine, however itunes then auto attempted to activate it...

This device will not preform any other function until it is connected to the computer with a valid SIM card in it. The device will then need to be activated with an AT&T (if in the United States) account. Only then will the device function normally

Sim card not supported

itunes is only able to sync with ATT sim cards. If it's unlocked to T-mobile. It won't do anything. And if you update the phone you'll relock it then have to re-unlock it again and run in to the same problem

Messed up iphone

turn off your computer and make sure to turn off itunes.
turn it back on including itunes, then plug in your phone.
restore your phone using itunes
if you are not using at&t then go to and run thier program to unlock your phone to use it with tmobile etc; if not, then just register it in itunes.
Good luck

Restore problem with emergency call display all time

Your iPhone is not factory unlocked. This means if you purchased it from the USA you need a deactivated ATT SIM card to get it past the activation or use a program called QuickPWN to Jailbreak + Activate your iPhone
