What are you doing with a phone without a connection? A SIM is a must for the phone to boot and function. Even a dead SIM would do. But SIM has to be in it. So contact the service provider and get a connection (and SIM). Unlocking may not be required as it is a Quad and 3G phone with all the frequencies.

I have a 3g 3.1.3 5.12.01 iphone. i need o use it with a tmobile sim card. if i cant how do i downgrade?


to use any phone on another network you need an unlock code that only your provider can give you. more than likely your provider will not give you the unlock code since it is an iphone, and that is for an iphone with any version. this is because apple and att are in a contract with eachother and it is designed for atts network and wont work properly on another network. also by using it on another network it can cause the iphone to be suceptible to different viruses and it can crash.

You'll need to take it to a phone shop, better taking it to the one that the cell phone belongs to (If it's a Vodafone or tmobile sim take it to a their shop) and they can do it for you, if you can't do it yourself. just for the safe side.. Some stores charge, others dont.

2 Problems..Sim Card Problems


Well, first off, an iPhone won't work at all with a T-Mobile SIM card. American iPhones are locked to AT&T's network -- only AT&T SIM cards will work in them.

As far as activating it with AT&T, make sure that the iPhone isn't connected to the computer while you install iTunes. Once iTunes is installed, connect the iPhone to the computer and iTunes should launch automatically and begin the activation wizard. Just follow the instructions on the screen and answer the questions.
