Iphone 3g 8gb Officially unlocked sim error problem

Hi
I've got an Iphone 3g 8gb officially unlocked, the problem is that it works fine with any carrier as long as I use an old sim card but If I use a new sim card of any carrier it wont recognise the sim card at all hence showing 'no sim'
Also I always need to restart the iphone when every i swap the sim

Pls help

Thanks

    Hi
    I think u misunderstood
    The iphone is only accepting old sim cards , it will not accept a new sim card bought from any carrier
    I hope this is clear now!
    The phone is officially unlocked from Czech Republic Vodafone

    Thanks

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 have old iphone just got it from my friend and when i connect in itune and updates its software this problem appears ""the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported ...


I would guess that you had received an unlocked Iphone, and the software update had fixed what apple saw as a problem. I would google the keywords of your inquiry. Do you know if you have the same cell phone carrier as the phone was originally sold as (at&t, or whatever other companies sell them). If you are using the same cell carrier company that the phone was purchased for and didn't switch, I would bring the phone into the company's store and ask them what the problem is. If you did have an unlocked phone, then, you may have to unlock it again. This is my best guess...hope it helps

I have an unlocked iPhone 2G,which I've been using on Orange UK for 2 years. I want to change to Vodafone (better reception where I live). I think it was probably originally an O2 phone (as they all were...


If your Iphone is officially unlocked then it should work with any (other) network compatible SIM card - just insert a friend SIM on another network (or just get a 'free' Vodafone pre-paid starter SIM for testing) and turn-on the unit - if it is locked in any way, it will tell you!
When you do a factory reset, your unit will normally reverted to original 'o2' BRANDING and defaults: this can only be removed by reflashing/reprogramming your iPhone with 'generic' Apple Iphone firmware. 'Branding' in general in an unlock hanset will not stop you from using most of the resources of your new network but 'unbranding' (andor 'unlocking') can always be performed by a qualified technician.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go! Have fun.

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..


Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)
