IPhones are locked to their original service provider, and won't work with another one. Google 'iPhone unlocking' and you'll find some helpful advice.

I got this phone ok and i put in a new sim now when i turn on my apple iphone all it keeps saying issim locked and emergency calls only


Are you using an AT&T Sim Card?
IF you are not then the iPhone has to be unlocked in order to use with a non AT&T sim card.

You can google how to unlock iPhone or post a reply with the Model of the iPhone (2G, 3G, 3GS or 4) and the firmware Version you currently have.

To view the firmware version go to Setting-->General-->About--> Version

Hi can u help with my iphone 3g. it is stuck on invalid sim and emergency mode. how can i get this off? and is there a way to unlock a iphone 3g 3.1.3?


Here is what you have to do. Get a friend that is on the same carrier as the sim card that is in your phone.

Next take your sim card out and put a friends (same carrier) sim card in and restore it. When it is done it will still be in emergency mode. When it says invalid sim put your original one back in it and after about 30 seconds it will go back to normal.

This solution just fixed my iphone 3g so this should work.

Best of luck, Michael Proctor

My iphone isnt reading my sim card, it says "no sim card installed, insert a valid sim with no pin lock to activate iphone" when i try to slide to unlock it it takes me to emergency calls, please help


Try replacing you sim and if you still get the same error then it is a device issue. You will need to contact your service provider for replacement options!

My iphone is only for emergency call only!


The easiest solution is to put in a sim card of the carrier you bought the iPhone from. If you can't do that you need to jailbreak and CID unlock the iPhone.

Without knowing which model, firmware or any details at all (as you provided none). I can only refer you to a tutorial on how to jailbreak an iPhone:

On the 3.0 firmware: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4254
On the 2.x.x firmware: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1558

My iphone says i can only make emergency phone calls!


Hello
Please connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC, and go to iTunes. CLick your iPhone tab, and check if there's a message.
Turn off the phone, take out your SIM card and put it back in. Turn on the Phone and sync to your iTunes
Hope this helps

I can make any call but my iphone says emergency


Your phone has not been fully registered to by the carrier you're using (AT&T ???) and until you do that, the default "slide for emergency call" display will be there.
