I bought a iphone 5s off ebay and it is through a sprint carrier and I had it flashed to straight talk and I got the sim activated for it but its not verifying the sim so im trying to figure out how to unlock so I can use it...
today i tried to contact AT&T for their unlock requirements but I had a strange surprise: My IMEI was not listed in their system. At live chat they told me that my e-mail would be send to Apple to check what is happening, but still nothing happend (don't know if such promise was made or not).I bought this iphone in eBay and it is supposed to be locked to AT&T (saw it on box and model). Is there any e-mail support that Apple would answer? I can't receive/make calls since i am overseas right know to use their call service.
After requesting for a carrier unlock with AT&T, I received their confirmation email and followed the directions. I have been trying to restore my iPhone 3G using the latest iTunes installed on a MacBook with OS X Lion. I have been unable to restore and use my phone. I am stuck at restoring it over and over giving me an error code of 1015.
I haven an jailbroken iphone 4 unlock in mexico TECEL and everytime i plug it into my macbook it ask me for an update on the carrier or something like that, should i do it? or not? i dont wanna loose my unlock u_u
I bought a 2nd hand Iphone4 and a carrier unlock was submitted to Vodaphone by the previous owner sucessfully. However the phone is still locked and it was well over 7 days since the request was put in. How long do these things take, I was told it would only be 5 days.
I just had my iPhone 4 unlocked by ATT, but how do I test that it is unlocked? The Apple knowledge base article [URL] says that once the iPhone has been unlocked I should get a message in iTunes saying: "Unlock Complete. Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked. To set up and sync this iPhone, click Continue."
I did not get that message, but neither did I get an error message. Since ATT's (possible) unlock I have updated the software to 5.1.1, and done a complete backup and restore. I bought the iPhone used from a friend several months ago, and then created a custom config / profile with Apple iPhone Configuration Utility. This allowed me to use the phone as a Pay As You Go phone on ATT's network, and has worked this way with no problems for the last six months. The phone has not been jailbroken, or unlocked with a third party unlocking tool.
In the next few weeks I will be traveling to the UK where I want to be able to use a local number, but want to make sure that this will work before I travel. How do I test ATT's unlock without a Tmobile micro sim that I dont have?
i recently purchased a brand new unlocked Pearl 9100 and on the side of the box was some Vodafone stickers but upon turning on the device i see no reference to Vodafone at all and the software version (6 Bundle 2474 v22.214.171.1246) seems to indicate it's generic firmware.I have been noticing the phone changing network layers (Egde, GPRS, 3G) erratically and seems slow to find a nearer tower and switch to it to remain 3G so i am thinking perhaps Optus firmware may have optimisation for this problem but i cannot get it loaded.I have tried deleting the vendor.xml file and reinstalling the Optus 9100 firmware, and following the usual instructions found in this forum but when it finishes reading the phone it states the Optus firmware is not compatible with my device so it's all blanked out.
I 'm running with Koodo Mobile(samsung m540) and my phone just die, i've a 3 years contract , My question is, Can i buy an unlocked phone and just transfere my contract or something like that. I know with sim card you just slide card for cell to cell and that its. But is there a way With cdma PHone ?
I telephone T-Mobile today and requested the Carrier Subsidy Unlock Code for our Motorola Defy. They said that they would have it to me in 24 hours! Has anybody ever actually had that quick of a turnaround time on a T-Mobile Carrier Subsidy Unlock Code request?
I have a SE Z520a that I want to recycle to a new carrier. My old carrier (AT&T / Cingular) gave me the unlock code which seems to work fine (I see unlocked icons for all five categories NCK, CCK, etc.). Now I would like to unbrand it.Will pushing a firmware update via SEUS be sufficient? It look like the current firmware for this phone is R3J017 while the phone internals say that I am on R3F017. I assume that if I update via SEUS, I will get the latest and greatest.If that is not sufficient, how do I get a generic branding? I know Davinci and some of those will do that, but I would prefer downloading software and doing it myself. I can't afford to brick the phone.
I thought I'd start a new thread to prevent going too far off topic on another thread that I asked this question on."If you want to go down that path you are better to root, unlock (via the market app) and then flash the XEU to your branded phone, and it will debrand it.It's all in a sticky on the Development link.EDIT: I've been using this root method and works well.For me downloading this file worked best and selected he 'touch' option http://clockworkmod.com/rommanagerTo avoid confusion it's this download: 126.96.36.199"Completed the above as advised by greenman and am now rooted (superuser installed and rooted apps work OK), but when trying apps to unlock phone I get no luck. Messages like "No code found etc from 2 apps I tried.
I have a Bell Blackberry Bold 9700 and I just switch to Rogers! Would it be *better if I flash the rogers firmware on the phone, or leave it with the bell firmware? The rogers one is .351 and the bell one is .423 ...I guess I was wondering if the rogers would be better since i'm on the Rogers network
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.
