IPhone :: Insert A Valid SIM With No PIN Lock To Activate It?
May 19, 2012
I just bought a brand new iphone from US' apple store to use in Canada with Rogers. I cut my own sim card and inserted into the sim tray of the iphone 4S. Unfortunately, it's reading the "insert a valid sim with no pin lock to activate iphone." My 4S is unlocked and it says so on the receipt as well. I've tried rebooting it and everything but it still reads that same message. I was wondering if it's something wrong with my iphone? should I go exchange it? I know the SIM isn't damaged because it still works on my blackberry despite the size.
I've bought an Iphone 3G from eBay and when I power it up it says insert a valid SIM card to activate the phone is not activated, please see the screenshot for the time being Iam seeking your help to activate it, since Iam new to Iphone business. noting that I am living in KSA.
I purchased an iphone for my girlfriend. It was unlocked and jailbroken already and had the Installer 3.0. She didn't want to re-type all her contacts so she tried snycing it through iTunes on her lap top (Window's XP). I really don't know what happened but now the iPhone says "NO SIM card installed, Insert an unlocked and valid SIM to activate iPhone"
I keep getting this, "Error invalid number. Please resend using a valid 10 digit mobile number or valid short code," every time I try to send a test message to someone. Yes, I have put a 1 and area code in front of the number and still nothing. Anyone have this problem? Any solutions? Thanks for the help in advance.
Peoples i need help with a phone that i found but the key are lock with a code. I can't insert any code beacause of that. theres any way to unlock the keys or some kind of hardreset using the hardware, or any posible way to have access to the phone.
Samsung Finesse How do you activate the security lock without having to go through the menu, type in your code, then have it lock.I am not talking about the screen lock button at the top, because when you use that and turn it back on the screen is unlocked and it doesn't require pass code. I'd like to have the screen lock whenever the screen times out, or it comes back out of "locked" mode.On some phones you push a combo of buttons and it locks? any idea?
I found a very annoying bug in my bold 9900 (latest firmware):When you activate the keypad lock (hardware button on device's top) you are still able to shutdown the device into standby by pressing ~ 5 sec. the power off button (hardware button right side: "power").this is a absolutely no-go.
How i can activate the automatic screen and keypad lock when i put my phone into the leather holster? My BB before the 9320 did this automatically , i did not have to activate anything , the new one doesn't to do it. And i have tried more than one holster.
I had an iphone 4 and I just upgraded to the 4s, didnt go to the store just put my iphone 4's sim card into the the 4s, and its giving me an error message ''SIM not valid'' whats the problem? The error message goes on to say ''Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activated iphone
I just recieved my replacement iphone 4 today, when I turn it on it says insert sim to activate, when I do that it says sim not valid but on top left displays vodaNZ(as im from nz). Keeps saying insert the sim your iphone came with. It doesn't say activate your ipone using apple id and stuff like that. All it says is insert sim to activate. Could it be a corrupt sim or hardware issue?
my iPhone 4 is supposed to be factory unlocked - and it works with all German carriers - I also checked one sim-card from Ireland, which also worked. However, I can't activate the iPhone with a Chinese sim-card or Thai sim-card. The error message "sim not valid" shows up. I tried those two sim-cards with an iPhone 4S of a friend (also factory unlocked), and both worked perfectly. My assumption is that my iPhone is only unlocked for European carriers?
Now I'm in a foreign country and don't know what to do! I also bought a microsim with internet data and it also does not activate. The iphone is unlocked from the carrier, at least they say that but Apple in Germany told me the phone has a restriction only for south america...
I got my iPhone4 from the US and was using it for the past 3 months, iPhone4 after upgrading to 5.1.1 shows sim not valid or no service. I use IDEA service in India. All my contacts and photos have been deleated.
I haven't seen anything stating that the email we all received stating that our iPhone4's would arrive Wednesday the 23rd and not the 24th is a real true from Apple.com email.Mine is in route to my local FedEx facility but still shows the 24th (yes I know what the email says even though it says the 24th it still will be the 23rd).
A guy is selling me his iPhone 3G but he says he does not have the receipt or the box.in such a case, if i buy it from him, will the phone be still under warranty?also is there any way to check if the phone is stolen? maybe that's why he says he does not have the receipt.
I'm working on rolling my own MDM service, and I'm trying to combine the SCEP and MDM payloads as the MDM protocol document from Apple suggests. I created my own SCEP web service in C# .Net and I know that the device can get a valid certificate when I just send the SCEP payload. However when I also include an MDM payload that points to the SCEP payload's UUID via the IdentityCertificateUUID key, I get the following error, "The enrollment server did not provision a valid identity certificate." This configuration is the one that is sent after the user chooses to install the initial enrollment configuration (step 1 of phase 2 in this diagram).The device doesn't appear to even make an attempt at connecting to my server, and thanks to server side logging I know that it never reaches my SCEP web service page. This seems to indicate that there's something wrong with the certificate I use to sign the payload. I've separately tried signing it with my SSL certificate (from a pre trusted root authority), my customer MDM push certificate (chained from our vendor cert), and my self-signed root certificate authority certificate (created via makecert.exe) that the SCEP service uses to issue new certificates (i.e. device identity certificates).I've looked at the output from the iPCU (iPhone Configuration Utility) when I create a profile with both the MDM and SCEP payloads, and it isn't a valid profile (I've even tried copying it nearly wholesale). However when I install the profile via the iPCU the error doesn't come up and it begins the SCEP enrollment process without issue.A side note - using a preexisting MDM vendor is not an option here.Below is the profile I'm using:
I live overseas but I got my iPhone from online in the states. I updated and now my iphone is instructing me to insert a SIM (which I dont have) and it won't let me load my iPhone. Is the a way to use my phone as an Ipod or is my phne just an overpriced paperweight now??
My mum bought me an Iphone 4S in duty free in South Korea airport, she was told it was unlocked, however, when I tried to activate it with my Kazakhstan sim card, it said that I had to use sim card of certain providers. I've checked the model's number in the Internet (MD237C/A), and from what I've learnt my Iphone is supposed to be unlocked.
Last night i was trying to stick my earphones in the iphone and it would not insert and later that night i tried again in my car so i could listen to music through my stereo and it would not work. Is there a way i can fix this manually without getting a new one from at&t. My iphone is also jailbroken also. I doubt that has anything to do with the problem because its a hardware issue?
