iPhone 3gs 5.0.1 and iPad BB 06.15.00

I just have jailbroken with redsnow and now I can't activate it. It comes out with this message:

"Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported carrier's store to receive a replacement SIM card".

It happens I bought an used iPhone and I do not have the SIM card.

What shoud I do? Didn't find anything on tutorials. Thanks a lot.

I tried to do that, but when restoring iTunes came up with an error.

Considering that (I don't know how) the problem vanished fro the iPhone, I just stopped worrying about.

Thanks for your help. A lot!
