1] Do I need a Sim card ?
2] What number would I have ?
3] How does it work ?
1. I would use a SIM card
2. I do not know
3. You unlock it off Ziphone
1. If you wanna use it as a Phone... yes...
2. Nothing without a SIM card... Depends if you actually use one.
3. What do you mean?
Does it have to be an ativated SIM card ?
You would have the phone number attached to the sim card.
As long as it works in other phone, it should work in an iPhone.
A SIM card is your access to a GSM network. It contains your phone number, and can store a few contacts as well. If you don't have a contract/subscription/prepaid plan with a GSM carrier then you don't have access to the network and you can't use it as a phone except to dial 911.
Your phone number is assigned to you (or chosen by you) when you sign up with a GSM cell carrier and stored on your SIM card. And yes, the card has to be activated if you want to use it as a phone. How else would you expect to be able to make a call?
How it works depends on what you use to do it. ZiPhone 2.6 is the easiest way to hack it. I just acquired an iPhone and it took me a few minutes to jailbreak, unlock and activate mine, and all I had to do was click one button. Please Register or Log in to view images

Can you just buy SIM cards ?
And what about texting ?
You can buy blank SIM cards, but that won't do you much good unless you can clone someone else's SIM, which is illegal anyway. Texting is the same as calling; you need to be with a GSM carrier. Same with browsing the web, or doing anything over the EDGE network.
So can you buy SIM cards ?
