IPhone :: Insert A Valid SIM With No PIN Lock To Activate It?

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.

Info:iPhone 4S

IPhone :: 4.0.1 - Install Valid SIM With No Pin Lock To Activate?
Today my iPhone froze with just the apple logo showing. So after searching the internet I found out that I need to restore it. I connected it to iTunes and restored it to 4.0.1 from 3.0.1. However, once it started up again I got the error. It simply tells me 'Install valid sim with no pin lock to activate iPhone'. If I slide it open I get an emergency number.

Samsung :: Finesse How Do You Activate Security Lock
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?

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?

IPhone :: Sim Not Valid (for Foreign SIM-Cards)
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?

IPhone :: ITunes Refuses To Add 3GS As Valid Remote Control
I have a new 3GS and whilst it is recognised by iTunes and I can add playlists, it recognises counts, etc. When I try to link the phone to iTunes using Apples remote app the phone gives me a code, iTunes recognises the phone and asks for the code. I input the code and after verifying for some time it blanks out the fields and ultimately I can not then link the app to the library.It worked fine with my old iPhone 3G, which I still use as a backup phone. The new 3GS phone works fine with my Apple TV.

IPhone :: Texting Error Resend Using Valid 10 Digit Number?
I've been having problems texting ever since I've upgraded to the latest firmware. When I try to text a person from my contacts, I get a text right back from 1 (121)611-611 : Error Invalid Number. Please re-send using a valid 10 digit mobile number or valid short code. I KNOW my contacts have 10 digits. I've double and triple checked that. The only way I can text is by going into the text window, open a new text, enter the 10 digit number and then write the message. It goes through fine. It even converts the 10 digit number to my contacts name when I do it like that and it sends. I also have this issue when I reply to texts! I try to reply but it doesn't go through. Has anyone experienced this and/or know how to fix this? I've tried a Restore, but it keeps happening.

IPhone :: Unable To Register / Language Code Supplied Is Not Valid
Trying to register my new iPhone 3Gs and when entering my existing iTunes account (note that I already registered an iPhone with this account last year), I get the message: language code supplied is not valid. Checked my apple account information (in iTunes) and noticed that my country/region is set as: GRC (probably Greece in short), tried to change country there but Greece is not provided (neither the alternative name: Hellas). Went to check what country will be provided if during registration of the iPhone I enter that I don't have an iTunes account and I see that the country/region is preset to: Hellas.Please advice me, how to register my iPhone with my existing account

IPhone :: The Enrollment Server Did Not Provision A Valid Identity Certificate
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:
