After restore my iPhone with iTunes it shows error like "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported"


Unlock Cell Phones
Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r4049238-unlock_cell_phone If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price. http://www.mobileunlockstore.com/?gclid=CKDb2_y2558CFSlJagodxBkDHw http://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/ http://www.superunlockcodes.com http://unlockcellphonecode.com/

Iphone wont recognise sim


when you upgrade to ios 5 its no longer jailbroken and therefore your sim isn't being recognize. as probably your iphone is locked to at&t or verizon while your sim is from a different company then the lock.

Iphone keeps telling me my SIM card is not recognised. I take it out and then put it back in. It gets recognised initially, but sooner or later (1 min - 1 hour) it will go back to not being recognised....


Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I downloaded new updates from ITUNES and after this my IPHONE will only call emergancy numbers. It says on ITUNES that my IPHONE sim card needs changing, but I dont know what they mean.


The sim card in your iphone might be bad - you can go to your wireless carrier to check.

Or you can switch sims with some one else to test if it the phone or the sim

- Reseat the SIM card: Remove the SIM card in your iPhone and then reinsert it.

-Restore your iPhone. Note that the computer you are using to restore the iPhone needs to be connected to the Internet and hopefully the one with all your content.

Contact your carrier

- In most cases your carrier will replace at little to know cost if it is damaged

Hope this helped

Hi can u help with my iphone 3g. it is stuck on invalid sim and emergency mode. how can i get this off? and is there a way to unlock a iphone 3g 3.1.3?


Here is what you have to do. Get a friend that is on the same carrier as the sim card that is in your phone.

Next take your sim card out and put a friends (same carrier) sim card in and restore it. When it is done it will still be in emergency mode. When it says invalid sim put your original one back in it and after about 30 seconds it will go back to normal.

This solution just fixed my iphone 3g so this should work.

Best of luck, Michael Proctor

Hi. I do this all day.

there are a few things you can try:

1- Restore it to factory settings and when its done dont restore from the back up instead set up as new iPhone and then Sync your info, contacts, Apps, music ect...

2-get a new sim card from your carrier

3-update itunes to 9.0.1 and update iPhone to 3.1 if all else fails and wait for DEV team to finialize 3.1 jailbreak
