    Any answers on this one? I've got the same problem. My iPhone 3GS is not jailbroken.There is a SIM card in the phone but I keep getting the message "There is no sim card in the iphone you are attempting to activate" when I try to restore the phone through iTunes.

    Try ejecting the card use the tool that came with the phone or a paper clip and then reseat the card making sure there is no dirt or corrosion on the sim card strips.
