    Hey so I was thinking about getting an iPhone 4 from my friend. If I don't have att and its on the insert sim to activate then i cant do anything with it right?

    Also, what if it's on the home screen? and I just want to use it as an iPod, it will work fine right? and is there any way to get cydia on it if its allready activated?

    Cydia is available for jailbroken phones only. No unjailbroken iPhone 4, activated or not, will be able to access anything more than http://cydia.saurik.com/ through Safari

    It might want a SIM card to get you to the home screen--I'm not sure if you can use a SIM to get to the home screen and then remove it or what, but somebody else here can help you with that

    I believe once you've inserted an activated SIM, it'll unlock unless it's restored in which case the activated SIM would need to be re-inserted.
