Did you activate the phone with a SIM card, you will not be able to access the phone and applications before the phone is activated / hacktivated. greenpois0n does not perform activation, you need to use the official iPhone carrier SIM card for this or you can try Sn0wbreeze (for Windows from here ) or PwnageTool (for Mac from here ) to create a custom firmware that includes activation.

Before flashing a custom firmware file to your device you need to put your device in Pwned DFU mode, you can do this using iReb (from here )or redsn0w (from here )
