Activating G1 without a SIM

Apologies if it's the wrong forum for this question.

I'm in India, and have brought over an unlocked G1 phone from the US
that I'd like to activate without a SIM card. I've added the necessary
entries in the android rules file /etc/udev/rules.d/ (I'm using Ubuntu
Hardy). Now the G1 is recognized by the OS as an external USB drive,
but 'adb devices' returns an empty list.

Is there an instruction page somewhere for this?

 This is not possible. The T-Mobile G1 explicitly requires a SIM with
data access during initial configuration.
