    Hmmmmm, strange. I've never attempted a restore on an iPhone that didn't have a SIM chip, so I honestly wouldn't know if that's what's causing the problem. Have you tried putting it in Recover Mode? Or possibly DFU Mode? I had to do this once (1st gen iPod Touch), but I'm definitely rusty Lol....I know it isn't too hard, give it a shot.

    You should be able to get past the "activation screen" (the screen saying connect to iTunes and allowing you only to make emergency calls) by putting in ANY at&t sim (dead or alive) and connecting to iTunes. I haven't tried this on a 4.0 but know it works on 3G's and 3Gs's. Once you are past the activation screen you will have to jailbreak and unlock it again to use another carrier.
