Ok so i put my simcard in and it said locked sim so wat do i do


If you bought the iPhone used, it could be already locked to a carrier. If the iPhone wasnt previously purchased at full price (or jailbroken) then it will be locked to a specific carrier like Rogers or AT&T. If thats the case, you will have to contact that carrier and ask if they will unlock it, otherwise jailbreaking the iPhone can unlock it aswell, you can find guides through google on how to do it, Apple doesn't support it.

If you did buy the phone new, then try plugging into iTunes (make sure iTunes is fully updated, i think 10.3 is then newest). If it recognizes it and doesn't activate the SIM card, there will be an option to restore the iPhone (Erase and reinstall the operating system. If it doesn't recognize it at all through iTunes, follow this article to force it into Recorvery mode, which can let you restore it. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808

You probably have a iPhone that is carrier locked to a specific SIM...only that particular SIM will work.. if it is 2nd hand please inquire which SIM it supports Your phone was probably 'unlocked' unofficially beforehand ... Updates break the unlock

I was in Itunes and was asked if I wanted to update to Iphone 2 and I chose Yes and after the update the iphone was locked and Itunes said that the SIM card is not supported


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support I am glad to assist.

What you may need to do is eject the SIM card and then re-insert it and try to update your iPhone via iTunes again.

According to Apple, the iPhone has to contain compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier and only those cards may be used to activate iPhone.

So make sure you have the right SIM card that is supported by the current carrier you have for your phone service.

I hope this information helps.

I ugraded my iphone(3G) from frimware 2.1.1 to 3.0.1 then when i started my iphone the itunes it is telling me that the SIM cards is not supportted


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

Iphone won't recognize sim


Your phone must be jail broken and unlocked to use non AT&T sim card. Be sure you have correctly installed redsn0w and ultrasn0w unlocker. If you have recently updated your phone that will undo your jailbreak and unlock. You will need to reapply them for the version of your iPhone OS if they are available.

SIM card not supported in itunes


what you need to do is put your iphone in recovery mode then wait until itunes reconizes your iphone. it should say itunes has detected a iphone in recovery mode choose restore and that should take care of the problem, (if you backed up your iphone b4 you updated it) and if that doesnt work your still in luck because the dev team put out a new jail for 2.2.1 n lower try jailbreaking it using quickpwn hope this helps

MY IPHONE COULD NOT RECOGNIZE MY SIM CARD AFTER I UPDATED TO IPHONE 2


Hi,

the 2.0 firmware update disables the Zibri unlock.
No big deal, you have to use Pwnagetool/Winpwn to unlock it.

youll find great tutorials for mac and pc here:

A few iphone problems


go into settings - general - reset and then resetting network settings. This should restart your iPhone.

This alone didn't work, but dialling 1760 to switch off voicemail then 1750 to switch it on again. This works!
