I was having problems with my iphone 4s so i got a replacement and now when i put a sim card in to activate the phone it says "only compatible sim cards from a supported carrier can activate the phone" What is the problem? It is a brand new replacement from apple. I got it myself today.
My iphone just shows these screens. "Only compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carriers store to receive a replacement SIM card." I don't have the original SIM card and don't really know what the carrier originally was?
I love my iphone 3GS but I had to switch carriers, I paid $129.99 a month for unlimited min,data,text,picture,gps on my iphone and I cant believe Sprint have that and includes sprint tv also just for $69.99 a month.
I wish I could have a cdma iphone for sprint.
I hope Sprint and Apple work something out, because verizon sucks.
Just wondering what the general opinion is here on how important having an iPhone is. Would you guys switch carriers left and right to follow a release of a new iPhone, or would you stay put with AT&T and get something else?
My iphone 3 gs has just suddenly stopped connecting to my carrier. it has been like this for 2 days. Have checked the sim in another phone and the sim is ok. Also how do i reset my phone without losing my info?
I currently have an Iphone 4s from Sprint that I purchased. I have a business cell phone account with Verizon and a Droid. I would like to use my Sprint iPhone on Verizon but I don't want to do it with "aftermarket" means. Is it possible to take my phone to an Apple store and have it flashed for Verizon?
I just moved to another country, and purchased a sim card for my unlocked iPhone 5s. After realising I purchased the wrong one, I cut down the micro sim to a nano.Â It seems like all services are working - I can make calls, receive texts, etc but the carrier name won't appear. Not sure if this is indicative of troubles to come. It appears blank next to the signal strength. Could this be because of the DIY sim card or was my phone not unlocked properly? I had it unlocked through my carrier back home.
I purchased two unlocked iphone 4s phones a few months back. I put in the sim card for my new carrier and it says activation required. When I say use cellular carriers network its telling me the sim card is not recognized and to use it with another carrier. I called AppleCare to confirm that in fact both my wifes and my phone were unlocked and could be used with any carrier. They said yes its unlocked and can be used with any carrier around the world.
I am looking for a way to determine if a used Iphone came from the factory carrier unlocked. I want to be able to check before I buy it and before I get ripped off. There are too many charlotans out there passing off their jail broken phones as "factory unlocked". .Calls to apple are not helpful. Apple does not want to be helpful in this even though they have a distain for jailbroken phones.
Info: iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1, Any phone any software.
I just bought an iPhone 4S UNLOCKED on March 2012 in Austin, TX.
I bring it to Brazil, but when I try to use my carrier's SIM card the iPhone locks the system saying "Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier my be used to activate iPhone. insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported carrier". When I try to use AT&Ts SIM card (that came with the iPhone but doesnt work here in Brazil) the iPhone unlocks the system. I just want my unlocked iPhone....
I've bought a second hand UK iPhone 4s locked to O2 and I'm heading back to the United States in the morning. I need to unlock it to use my American sim, and wondered if I use the apple auth unlock system whether it' matters where in the world you are.
I recently restored my iphone 4 to factory settings to fix a seperate issue, but since my phone has been saying 'only compatible sim cards fron a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone' My sim card is an english o2 sim which has always worked previously. I am unable to set upthe phone or restore using itunes so my phone is completely not functioning. what i could try next? My last resort is the genius bar
So I had to reset my iPhone because it completely froze while I was browsing the web. When I restarted it, my service bars would show up, but not my carrier name. But now, after resetting my network settings, turning off/on the phone, and taking out and placing in the sim card (even replacing it), it shows my carrier, but my signal bar is COMPLETELY flat. I'm running on T-Mobile, so I'm not sure if it has to do with the phone or my carrier.
