Is there any way around the “connect to iTunes” screen on an iPhone 3GS?

My iPhone 3GS is stuck on the screen where it tells you to connect to iTunes. Is there any way round that without using a computer?

Sorry :(
A friend with iTunes maybe? An internet cafe?
You only need it to activate the phone

I would expect iPhone to automatically register itself with iTunes if SIM card with data connectivity is present. I know that WiFi won't work, but having active SIM card in the phone does this for me.

If iPhone is locked to specific carrier and SIM card is not from that carrier this won't work.
