Thanks for using FixYa. Please tell me if you are getting any blocked message or any other screen that asks for an unblocking code? Also tell me if it was jailbreaked using a software (like redsnow or cydia) or Have you used SimFree?

If you are using SimFree then follow these instructions to unlock your iphone--

1. On the Activation Screen, slide to the Emergency Screen.
2. Type *#307# and hit Call, the phone will start ringing and display 1 Calling.
3. Delete all the numbers from the top right of the screen and Call the number 0.
4. Press Answer, Hold and then Decline.
5. Go to Contacts and create a contact. In the Url field type prefs://1f and save it. Then add another URL and type and save it.
6. Click on the prefs://1f and you can select your WiFi network. Exit by pressing home and then Dial and Call the number 0 from the emergency screen.
7. Select the second URL called of the contact you created and and follow the Install AppSnapp. Wait for it to finish and reboot the phone when its done.
8. Now AppTapp is on your Home Screen so you can install SimFree v1.7 directly on the phone.
9. In Sources press Edit, Add, and type in . Accept the AppTapp installer message and it will show iPhoneSimFree on your Install list.
10. After that you must install from the System tab the BSD Subsystem and then SimFree v1.7 from the iPhoneSimFree tab.
11. You should now Go to the phone Settings application and in General - Auto Lock, select Never you can now run SimFree v1.7.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I bought a prepaid phone card for my lg cookie and it will not let me add it i called at&t and they did something and made my phone not have a number and now it says i do not have a sims card too what...

if you are using a sim card from a prepaid phone just bought, and then add it to another att branded phone, it will not work. if you use the sim card in the new prepaid phone, it will work. att locks the sims from working in other phones for 3 months from the factory. i did the same thing with a prepaid phone and a Q9, put the sim in the q9 and it said, no service. put the sim in the prepaid phone, it worked fine. my suggestion is to talk nice ot the att store employee, and they will give you a new sim.

let me know if your phone is doing something different.

Find somebody with an AT&T sim card, put it into the phone and plug it into itunes to get it up an running. Otherwise if your not using AT&T you're gonna have to jailbreak the phone to use it. If your a prepaid AT&T customer, you can activate it but you gotta call AT&T at 800 331 0500

Sony ericsson w850i

SE SIMs are difficult to remove. The band holding it is place does not slide like other models typically do. In order to remove the SIM, you have to press down slightly on the exposed part of the SIM and try to slide it out, keeping it parallel to the body of the phone.
