You can't hacktivate a 4S, you're going to need a SIM from the carrier it's locked to. It doesn't need to have active service on it.

Or, get an IMEI unlock as @markhack said.

Hi, I use to do this trick with my iphone 4 when I was stuck at the same screen as you, I dunno if it works with iphone 4S, but it worth a Try:

Once you slide, you'll be on the "choose country screen", Then you just have to fellow these steps

1 - Home button during 3 sec

2 - Chooze emergencies call

3 - Call 112

4 - Without exiting the call, push the On/Off button until "Off" and "Cancel" appear in the scree

5 - Click cancel

6 - click on the green band on the top of the screen

7 - Click "Cancel" the call

8 - Congratulation, you're on the springboard thanx to Symphony :D

You have to repeat these steps everytime you want to surf through the springboard and use it as an ipod...
