How to activate an iPhone without hacking or contract penalties...


This seems to work according to Hackintosh.org.

-Sign up with AT&T


-Wait until you get the email that activates your iPhone


-Call AT&T and cancel your contract. You have 30 days to cancel. The iPhone stays activated.


Now you can use nearly all of the features of the iPhone without paying AT&T a monthly fee, or having to cancel a cell phone contract with another carrier. It is so slim and compact, it won't be a problem to carry your regular phone and your new (M)iPhone.


And it won't be long before people figure out how to install a VOIP widget to use when you are in a WiFi spot.
