Reset the phone..now what?

So I wanted to clear my iPhone 4 because I gave it to my son.I go a new phone number for it from the store, but told them to wait to activate it. They gave me the sim card, told me to put it in and I could go online to activate it. Well, I cleared the phone in the settings and now it won't do anything except emergency calls. Did I just screw it up? Or is there something I can do?

Is there an active SIM card in the phone now? Emergency calling only is normal when there is no active SIM card installed.

Have you inserted the sim card & tried activating it through iTunes? You may have to call AT&T customer service if that didn't work.
