    Hey,

    So my iPhone 3G is jailbroken. But I want to go back to stock Apple firmware. I'm away in the states now and shut off my phone before I crossed the border - I live in Canada.

    Is it possible to restore, then activate once I cross the border to Canada? Do you need to be plugged into the PC to activate after the restore?

    I wanna restore now without my SIM, turn it off, put in the SIM and then once I get to Canada pop in the SIM and turn on the phone while we're driving... And it'll be fully functional for text and 3G?

    Thanks,
    Brendan

    I think no matter where you are just restore, put SIM plug in itunes and activate.

    Okay perfect. Because if I activate while I'm in the states it'll mess up and cost me.
