Iphone 3gs will not activate without sim


I have an old iphone 3gs that was a koodo phone, it no longer has a sim card and when I updated it I can no longer get it activated so I can't use it. Will buying a koodo sim card fix this issue?

Koodo never sold the 3GS so it can't be a Koodo phone. Maybe it's Telus? Either way you're going to have to find out the real original carrier of the phone and unlock it before you can use it.

If it's a Telus iPhone 3GS, I thought Koodo supported that phone even without unlocking?
Thanks for the advice, I have a telus sim I will try but I only want to use the 3gs as an ipod, I just can't get past the activation settings. Thanks

Ah. That's a very inconvenient "feature" of iPhones. Good luck man.
