No one got their head bitten off.
Posting erroneous information should be confronted, and will be by me. You do what you want in your own threads.
You see that bucko has corrected his error.
And you also see that NO ONE has posted anything at all to do with what I asked: "Does anyone know where I can buy this card, or another one that will work to activate iPhone 4.0.1?" (Maybe I should have inserted the word "locally" after buy.) Though rbusch did post a taobao guess, as he said, he doesn't even know if it is the correct one, if it will work, or if the seller is reputable. Yes, of course the seller will say it is, or whatever you want to hear. However, many are the people who have been ripped off buying from taobao. ;)
The problem is that the iPhone needs to be activated. There is only ONE WAY to activate an iPhone, and that requires a SIM.
The title of the thread is "phonebook sim card for iPhone", and I wrote all that information in the first post in hopes of discouraging erroneous guesses. It rarely works, and didn't this time either.
I'm not some Bubba without a clue ... my background with technology goes back over a couple of decades, and I have daily (even right now) contact with the iPhone hackers such as semaphore (Firmware Umbrella thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/ ), Sherif Hashim ( twitter.com/sherif_hashim ), BigBoss ( thebigboss.org/ ), and others. I'm also the HCL maintainer for the largest Linux help site on the internet, code, and work with software source daily.
If I needed help upgrading the firmware, that is what I would have asked. What laotou, bucko, and rbusch said does not work. In the words of the guys mentioned in the above paragraph, "these people are all guessing."
When you consult me about your issues, or bring your unusable computer to me for repair, I don't guess without any background or knowledge. Would you like to pay for that? You can get it for free on Yi Er Yi Da Jie every day. ;)
Tiger, it seems as if you need to read it again, as you've misunderstood. Don't let your emotions get in the way of technical discussions, eh?
To the site manager: can you add code tags to this interface?
