Why Won't Carrier Name Appear On Unlocked IPhone 5s

Aug 21, 2014

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. 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.

Info:
iPhone 5, iOS 7.1.2

IPhone :: Unlocked 4s Not Working With New Carrier

Mar 12, 2012

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.

IPhone :: How To Tell If A Is Carrier Unlocked From Factory

Apr 2, 2012

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.

IPhone :: 4S Unlocked Isn't Activating With Another Carrier?

Apr 17, 2012

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....

IPhone :: Warranty Replacement For Carrier-unlocked 4s?

Apr 14, 2012

I have an iPhone 4S that was recently unlocked by AT&T. Unfortunately, it's developed an issue where all the radios cut out if I talk on the phone for more than a few minutes. Assuming I can get this replaced by Apple, would my unlock carry over to the new phone? It was hard enough getting AT&T to unlock this phone, I'm not sure if theyd do it if they can't verify the IMEI was the same one that I purchased.

Info:
iPhone 4S, iOS 5, 64GB AT&T model, authorized unlock

IPhone :: Can An Unlocked 4s Work Without Any Issues On Simple Mobile Carrier?

Jun 29, 2012

I'm thinking of buying an 4s unlocked to use on Simple mobile carrier which they allow iPhones to be used on their not work but don't support it as stated on their website. Giving that it's an unlocked iPhone, all I would need is a Simple mobile sim card and I'm good to go but my question is.... will all features work? It would suck if I bought it at full price just to find out some features may not work on the unsupported network. It would defeat the purpose of having an unlocked iPhone if I can't use it on any GMS carrier.

iPhone 4, iOS 5

BB Bold 9700 :: Unlocked Phone Still Has Some Carrier Software?

Apr 25, 2010

I have an unlocked T-Mobile 9700 that I'm using on Cincinnati Bell Wireless.At certain points I still see T-Mobile screens or software displays - when I first open up the browser, when the phone first reboots, etc.It happens quickly and doesn't really bother me, I was just curious if certain software stuff like that was permanently set into the phone's OS even though it is unlocked and working well on another carrier..(I upgraded to .593 yesterday.)

Oct 22, 2015

I'm currently looking at trying out the Windows 10 Mobile preview, and much of what I've read says that system resets are needed to make it useable. If I perform one, does my phone remain carrier unlocked?

IPhone :: Bought Unlocked Phone - Will Restoring Backup To New Unlocked Phone Restore It To Its Original Locked State

Mar 4, 2010

So, I just bought a JB'en iphone 3g tonight.Went ahead and unlocked it using ultrasn0w.Connected it to my mac/itunes, and it asks "an iphone has been previously synced with this computer. setup as a new iphone -or- restore the backup of ***"So, since I had purchased apps using my *** phone (actually was an ipod touch that i got rid of), I'm thinking that I should restore the backup so that I can get my paid apps back for free.

Questions:
-will restoring this backup to the new unlocked phone restore it to its original locked state (i.e. will i have to re-jailbreak/unlock)? or will it simply restore preferences, etc...?
-otherwise, if i call this phone a new name, is there a way to transfer my purchased apps to the new phone's account?

IPhone :: Switch Carrier?

Apr 9, 2010

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.

At least I have my ipad.
