When i'm attempting to activate through SAM i'm getting an error that reads:

Activation reports Error:

ActivationInfo Rejected. You must select the original carrier SIMID of your phone.

Can anyone help me out here?

You should be able to activate your device with SAM though, and it sounds like this person is just trying to activate.

I get WildcardActivated however when I deactivate I either get the Sim error from iTunes or Activation Error.

If you have saved your lockdown folder it will work other wise there is no other way to activate it.
