Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Iphone Hi folks I bought an iphone on ebay, it came unlocked and I think it was a american version. The internet an all the applications would not work apart from the phone and itunes. (i was using an orange sim card in it) this worked, but no internet or web applications. The message was I was not subscribed to edge, I then tried to fix by updating the version on the phone, then went into itunes and it is blocked, the message come up that the sim is not supported insert original sim, so nothing works now. Someone please help, there was no original sim, How do I unblock and fix so I can get it to work with my orange sim, with all the applications working. Anyone please help. Pranay Parmar

How to reregister iphone 2g with no contract


First option is to put a legit sim card. - this will be a problem if you bought your iPhone from another country.
2nd option is to jailbreak and unlock your phone. - if you've upgraded your iPhone to version 3.1.3, there's a great chance that you won't be able to do this option.
3rd option is to use a turbo sim which you can find on eBay. check out some items i've searched for you. - this option will work only if you have 2.30 or lower iPhone software version.
other than those 3, i don't know anything more.

I updated new version of software 3.1.3 but it is nt activated it is not supporting 2g sim


Hello,
If you have a carrier locked iPhone (AT&T in the US), then simply connect the iPhone to your computer with the iPhone's USB cable and open iTunes. Upon doing so, iTunes should connect to the internet and activate your iPhone by confirming your AT&T service account via Apple's activation servers.
If your iPhone is using a Non-AT&T carrier, then you must download and use an application like Blackra1n to re-activate your iPhone and jailbreak it, if necessary.
However, please note, if you need the iPhone unlocked as well, firmware OS version 3.1.3 (currently the latest, as of this writing) is not unlockable due to the changes it makes to your baseband. You cannot downgrade your firmware OS either since the baseband changes 3.1.3 makes to your iPhone's modem are permanent.
Until a proper fix is found and released by the iPhone Dev-Team (the creators & supporters of the iPhone unlocking software), the best you can hope for is an activated, jailbroken iPhone, but sadly, not unlocked.

I just bought a new iPhone 3g and i tried to unlock it through the internet. No sim card is working on my phone. All that my phone is displaying is "itunes" and an arrow pointing to it. Whats the problem?...


Hi, i don't think you can jail brake the iphone from the internet. I think your best bet would be to buy a smart sim from ebay. You can find thousands there. You just pop the magic card in, switch the phone on and off and then your free to use any network you like. I hope this helps.

Upgrade my iphone


Indian cellular systems do not (yet) support the iPhone, so your connectivity will be 'iffy' at best. You have to install iTunes (free from Apple.com) to upgrade the software.

Unlocked iphone


As of right now no iPhones will work on any carriers other than AT&T, unlocked or not. AT&T has exculsive rights to the iPhone until 2012, so unless you put an AT&T sim card in the iPhone it will not transmit.

Plus even if you could get the phone to work on another service providers network, as soon as you plugged the phone in to your computer, iTunes would disable it...

Sorry
