Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

many thanks for your help (used ibrickr to unlock phone)
It sounds like the handset is iCloud locked (find my iPhone hasn't been turned off). This happens too many second hand phones, the previous owner isn't aware of this or u have bought a stolen phone?
If you know the previous owner they would know the apple ID and ID password to activate it, after that you would have to do a reset the phone.

SOURCE: Is my iphone blocked ?
Is your sim card csm or cdma? I'm not sure if the iphone can handle both, but I know it works with GSM.
If you have a gsm sim card, then you just need to unlock it. Of course, Apple won't let certain carriers use their phones legally. So you have to unlock it. I don't remember the exact process, but there's a good program to help you through it step by step.
Go to this site and read up before trying to do anything technical with your phone (link)wikee.iphwn.org
There's a lot of informtion there, so make sure to read up to find what's best for you. You'll need to know the firmware your phone is using 1.1.4 to 2.2 you need to know. The site I posted should have all the info for you.
Again, if your sim card is gsm, it should be no problem to use your sim.
Alright, good luck.
