    Try a DFU restore to the Apple firmware without the SIM card inside.

    What cell phone company do you use? If you are using version 2.2.1 without AT&T, you can't activate it or unlock it because baseband 2.30 can not be downgraded or unlocked yet.

    If its blocked by the network, then the only thing you can do to make it work is to change/spoof your IMEI. Not sure if there is an easy/safe way to do that. Sim adapter maybe, they use some funky network tricks, but there is a good chance it will not work or get you in more truble.

    Also if it is blocked by the network, then there is a really good chance it is bocked on others also, so unlocking it and using it on another network probably wouldnt help.

    So you got a $30 ipod touch, not bad :)

    oh yea there is a good chance that syncing it with your iTunes acount would notify apple who has the phone and where the police can go get it.
