Same thing happened to me... I bought iphone outright from telstra (and they unbricked it), but as I have optus sim card it wouldn't accept it.... did you know they are locked to networks?

    i got refund from telstra and bought from Optus instead. All iphones are locked to networks regardless of purchase outright or not. This is what my prob was. Also, did you know that you need to get a new 3g sim? I think telstra charges, but optus didn't charge me.

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

IPhone SIM Failure


The phone is locked to Apple and needs a Security code to unlock it.
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for “Security unlocking code”.

Error


if you restored it, you're going to have to unlock it from scratch. PWN has a new tool out to unlock the iphone even if it's been "bricked". that's what i used when i accidentally restored my original iphone from 1.1.4 to 2.0 by mistake. works great. Just google the "download PWN iPhone 2.0" it's easy to use.

P.S. this may take some time if you've never unlocked a phone before, my first time took 1.5 hours.

Cannot import contact from sim card to iphone 3G


Turn off the iPhone before inserting the sim, insert sim, turn on, import contacts. If you put the sim in the phone without restarting it for some reason it doesn't get all the contacts sometimes.

Iphone PUK code


Hey I can solve this!!!!!!!!! ok step 1 : do you have friend that has a sim card? well if you do ask to barrow it then insert it step2: go to itunes and your iphone should come up step 3: ask him or her to insert there Billing Zip Code (i forgot to mention this, when itunes reconizes the iphone it will ask you to register it or whatever click continue) and ask your friend to put his or her personal **** such as email address an LAST 4 DIGITS OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!!! step 4: when thats done it have to install then it will let you into itunes then sync your music,videos yadda yadda yadda then pop out the sim card WARNING do not put your real sim card or it will do this **** all over again ALSO i do not know yet how to make calls or just look up fring its a app(FOR FREE on itunes) that allows you to make calls WITHOUT SIM CARD look it up
Overall (depending on the speed of your computer ) it should take 5-10 minutes and aslo you have your friends number programed onto your iphone but its better than trying to guess the PUK/SIM PIN

IPHONE SHOWING INCORRECT SIM AND ASKING FOR APPROVED SIM


This was attempted on 5.11.2008
Hi I was using ziphone with 1.1.4 firmware and wanted to use Quickpwn 2.1. I restored my Iphone from I tunes by clicking and holding SHIFT then hitting restore in I tunes and after it rebooted it asked me to insert original sim-card. I inserted my pay as you go O2 sim-card, which it was happy with. I went to upgrade to 2.1.1 firmware but it asked me to upgrade to the latest I tunes. After updating I tunes I then uploaded the firmware 2.1.1 I then followed the procedures exactly as explained from QuickPwn, everything worked fine. It came to the end which also unlocked the phone but when putting in the unofficial sim-card, it said “Please insert original sim-card.
