Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I recently bought a second hand iphone. The phone only allows for emergency calls and requests for an unlocked and valid sim to activate phone. Does this mean I have to purchase on o2 sim for uk or can I get the phone unlocked to networks to use my vodafone sim. I tried just inserting my vodafone sim but it does not get recognised.
Sorry for asking basic questions but I do not know an awful lot about mobile phones and I am woried I have been sold a 'lemon'
Can any of you guys advise...all replies appreciated..
Is your sim card csm or cdma? I'm not sure if the iphone can handle both, but I know it works with GSM.
If you have a gsm sim card, then you just need to unlock it. Of course, Apple won't let certain carriers use their phones legally. So you have to unlock it. I don't remember the exact process, but there's a good program to help you through it step by step.
Go to this site and read up before trying to do anything technical with your phone (link)wikee.iphwn.org
There's a lot of informtion there, so make sure to read up to find what's best for you. You'll need to know the firmware your phone is using 1.1.4 to 2.2 you need to know. The site I posted should have all the info for you.
Again, if your sim card is gsm, it should be no problem to use your sim.
Alright, good luck.
