I recently acquired an iPhone4 with a T-mobile sim card that is not activated. It worked fine until I swiped it on my PC. Now I can't turn it on because it says it wants a valid sim card.

Is there any way I can activate this phone so my kids can play on it like a touch?
Thanks
 
Not that I am aware of. If you have another 4 or 4s use that SIM. Once it is activated then you can remove it and use it via WIFI.

Thanks, do think if I go buy a pre-paid T-mobile sim card for like $10 that will work?
 
Same network prepaid sim will work to activate phone any on unlocked

I'm sorry I don't quite follow you. Are you saying that yes I could purchase a prepaid SIM card to activate the iPhone?
