Question about Apple iPhone 5
My nephews were activating my phone for me, but the youngest one stuck the sim card in without the tray. They tried to remove it with needles, and other slim objects, but seem to have jammed it in farther. Not happy with them...but need to get this out, and don't know what else to do! Can we take the back off of the iphone and get to the sim card?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

the new sim card is connected with having an iphone account. when you say it is officially unlocked.
does this mean that AT&T unlocked your phone?
what i think your saying is that if you have 2 sim cards, one that is in use and the other is a spare you cannot use both. at the same time.
the sims are standalone, to use a spare sim it has to be activated by the carrier, thus disabling your original sim.
when you change sims you will need to reboot the phone that will not change.

I also had purchased an Iphone clone not to long ago. My service provider was AT&T. 90% of the time when my SIM card was inserted the phone would read "emergency mode". I would have no service, I wouldn't be able to receive or send any calls or text messages. I talked to AT&T representatives who would solve the problem for short periods of time but never gave me a permanent fix. I immediately sent the phone back to the seller. I have been doing a lot of research on these Iphone clones and I have seen quite a few times that people have problems in this area, not being able to have service. Also, what you have purchased and think is a genuine Iphone very well may not be. Many models of these Iphone clones now have the Apple symbol on the back and even have the Apple logo displayed on the screen when they start up. This being the case, you may very well have purchased a fake Iphone which would lead to problems with your service provider. I'm not sure how to fix the problem, and for this I apologize because I know how frustrating it is not to have service. But, I can tell you that your best bet may be to return the phone and try something else. All I've heard is that the genuine Iphone is the best way to go. Because these clones are made by independent manufacturers and not sold through AT&T, even though they may seem nice, many people have constant problems with service. Good luck, and if you find an alternative solution please let me know!
