The network carrier ( service provider) is set by the sim card
take the phone to your prefered service provider shop and see if they can identify the provider from the sim card
if not possible or the provider is identified but not to your preference, have your service provide get a new sim card and set it up for you
what ever happens they will try to help you get the phone working

How can I turn off the busy signal on my phone?


Check your iPhone settings
  1. Turn airplane mode on and off. Tap Settings > Enable Airplane Mode, wait five seconds, then turn airplane mode off.
  2. Check your Do Not Disturb settings. Tap Settings > Do Not Disturb.
  3. Check for any blocked phone numbers. Tap Settings > Phone > Blocked.
  4. See if Call Forwarding is turned on. Tap Settings > Phone > Call Forwarding.
Update your software
  1. Check for a carrier settings update.
  2. Check for an iOS software update. Some updates might require a Wi-Fi connection.
Remove and reinsert your SIM card If your iPhone has a SIM card, remove the SIM card, then reinsert it. Update your Preferred Roaming List (PRL) The PRL determines the cellular towers that your iPhone uses for cell service and selects those with the best signal strength.
  • If you're on the Verizon network, dial *228 and select option 2.
  • If you're on the Sprint network, dial ##873283#.
Contact your carrier When you contact your carrier, check the following:
  • Your account is set up to use your iPhone.
  • There aren't any localized service outages.
  • Your account doesn't have a billing-related block.
  • Your calls don't have errors on the carrier system.
Check your network settings
  1. Reset your network settings. Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will erase all current saved settings, including Wi-Fi passwords, preferred networks, and VPN settings.
  2. Try to make or receive calls in another location.
  3. Switch to a different network band. Tap Settings > Cellular and turn off Enable LTE, 4G, or 3G (this option will depend on your carrier and device model).
Still can't make or receive calls? If you still can't make or receive calls, restore your iPhone as new.If restoring doesn't fix the issue, contact Apple Support or take your iPhone to an Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service Provider.

Sprint phones

  • CDMA carrier
  • Uses 800MHz and 1900MHz spectrums primarily (bands 26 and 25), and 2.5 GHz for Sprint Spark (band 41)
  • Does allow devices to be used on selected Sprint resellers such as Ting
  • Phones will not work with Verizon
  • LTE devices and iPhones may work with GSM networks, although service possibly limited
  • Still not an 'unlock friendly' carrier
Sprint has recently launched a 'Bring Your Own Device' campaign for selected MVNOs (smaller wireless providers who operate on its network).
This means that some (not all) Sprint devices will be able to be used on either Ting or Boost Mobile (unfortunately, Sprint's prepaid MVNO, Virgin Mobile, doesn't accept phones from any other carrier - you'll have to buy a Virgin Mobile handset to sign up for service).
Outside of carriers on the Sprint network, taking your Sprint phone to Verizon Wireless is more or less impossible. We've heard of people trying, but so far no success stories.
If you wish to take a Sprint device to T-Mobile or AT&T, you may be able to do so with LTE-capable devices and Apple iPhones...but there are no guarantees. Some handsets sold by Sprint are marked as 'global' phones, meaning they are also have room for a SIM card despite running on Sprint's CDMA network.
As confusing as it is, if you can get your Sprint phone unlocked, there is a chance you can have it activated for service on a GSM network - but you'll need to speak with your new carrier and ask whether they'll accept the make and model of your handset.
Even if you do get the all-clear, getting your phone unlocked is the tricky part. While Sprint are happy to unlock phones for international use (provided the device is paid off and the customer's account is in good standing), the company isn't as enthusiastic about unlocking devices when customers wish to take them to another carrier. There's more info about the unlocking process - and what a headache it can be - here.
And if you do manage to get your Sprint phone unlocked and find a carrier that agrees to let you bring it on to their network, it's unlikely that the phone will work in quite the same way as it did on Sprint, due to the differences in carrier networks we've discussed above.

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

Can iphone a1203 be used on other carrier networks.Sprint,Verion,Nextel,other than Att?


Which iphone is it? 3G 3GS or 4?

As long as your phone isnt locked to a network carrier you should be able to use it with any network.

If the phone is locked wouldnt advise Jailbreaking your phone as it can mess with the software within the phone and permanently change it, your best paying your network to unlock the phone for you, they'll give you the details.

Need to unlock iphone free


The phone must be unlocked by the original service provider. You cannot do it yourself.

The service provider will not charge to unlock.

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.
