My coworker gave me an iphone. He said one of his bitches gave it to him. He is dominican and reallllllly sketchy and I am sure it is stolen. Should I try and activate it or no? It is an early model 4gb.

I called AT&T to try and run the serial # but they will not do it. They said just to try and activate it and if it works then it is not stolen...what to do.

Just activate it. If someone comes a knockin, just point them to him.

Activate it. Turn it to vibrate and duct tape it to your fleshlight. When your father in law calls and says you're an asshole. It'll be mind blowing.

they don't use sim cards? dropping one in would be easy and pain free.

Everything I post is 100% true, I actually have an honesty problem that I see a therapist for. I can not tell lies or keep secrets.

Would arrest for receipt of stolen property end your trolling?

If so, I'm all for it. Fire that bitch up!

I called AT&T twice and both reps said if it was reported stolen it will not activate but to try it anyway. I guess I should.

I took the card out of my activated LG phone and it said no service in the iphone. There is also a small lock icon at the top of the screen.

you need the newer sim cards and you can't use an iphone on any other network than AT&T

ETA: I pay $150/month for (2) iphones, unlimited texting, 1400 shared minutes, unlimited nights/weekend, unlimited data, etc

You can unlock the iPhone and then use it on any provider that uses GSM.

Same thing with any other phone. As long as the type of network is the same (GSM, CDMA, iDEN, etc) then an unlocked phone can be used for multiple providers. This is easiest with a SIM card, but can be done wiht out one as well.

unlocking the iPhone requires hacking the software, out of the box you can't just swap the card
