Nowhere in the thread did you say you tried a Sprint sim card. For our customers we have also created the troubleshooting section which they can use to resolve most common issues with their unlocks. Its having the same issue, when I try to connect to WiFi it gave me that error message. Those instances are in fact rare, but it's enough that we can't be use as a blanket statement that we can use all Telus or Koodo phone on Tellus without unlocking although most can be. Best Regards, Hi Hueda10, If you have successfully used a Vodaphone sim card in the handset it would mean that it was unlocked, however most unlocked iPhones will temporarily lock to the first sim that is put in them.
Please contact Apple for more information. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. If you got an iPhone from a network company, your iPhone is locked to their network only. The crazy is that I am using the same carrier as the last owner. Does this clarify things for you? Live and learn I guess for you from now on. Please contact Apple for more information. Hello, I followed these exact instructions before I left.
The same applies to Sprint. As I say this stupid, confusing and annoying process is Apple's doing and not 48's. Thanks in advance for your help with this!! No It is definitely unlocked, I said I went to Iconnect which is the apple store and they told me just yesterday that the phone is unlocked. Network companies make profits from these contracts due to locked-in period. He repatedly said yes it is and there is no problem at all. Unfortunately this is trpical of Apple and the complicated way that they manage iPhones on certain networks. After a phone has been activated on the Verizon network, it is unlocked for use with other carriers.
Hi everyone, I just bought a second hand iphone 4. Thanks Sorcha wrote: Dear all in this community. You don't seem to be sure whether or not it's locked to Three. Could this be the case? But when I switch it out back to Public Mobile, I am met with that error. If you already know which carrier it is locked to then you can order an unlock on our home page. Can't access my home page, settings, etc. After he bought a new phone he shut down the iphone for one and a half year since today that i bought it.
Choosing start over will give you option to choose the language then select your country or region then choose a WiFi network, when the network is selected it will show the error that is mention above. Please contact Apple for more information. Thanks for the help guys. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. We are not empowered to change policy but, I am sorry that you were not advised that the phone needed to be activated before you left the U. But the staff says it is not.
Was the handset unlocked before you took it to be repaired? It will be deeply appreciated. Many questions are about cross border use of iPhones. To confuse matters even further, some phones are locked when sold, but are unlocked at a later date when the original owner has paid for the initial contract. I have also try to activate it through itunes I am getting the same message , I did also a hard reset but nothing. This message pops up if you are trying to use your iPhone on an unsupported network so it must be carrier unlocked before you can do so. So we kind of assumed it was working okey.
Please contact Apple for more information. Best of luck to you though. They told me to sync it to itunes but that didn't help. Now it's saying the phone is locked agian? Sprint iphones are usually the cheapest ones. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. The question here is that an iPhone was purchased but Apple's activation policy is incorrect. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone.
I tried my 6 plus with my friends sim card who is with 3 and it worked perfectly, but it doesn't work with my 48 sim card. If it is locked to any network at all then it needs to be unlocked to work on 48. It's possible that there's some type of error in Apple's database, but as it stands now, your phone is not unlocked - sorry. I was using my phone earlier today with no problem at all. I don't want to have to move network to a bigger company Probably the stupid iPhone activation process that Apple insist on using and which causes problems for many people. The Sim card that you currently have installed in this iphone is from a carrier that is not supprotedunder the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server.
A phone purchased from Verizon would initially need to be activated with Verizon service. Note that the iPhone was activated in the United States on 03-14-2018. This ensures others can benefit from our conversation. You may have bought your phone outright, but for whatever reason, your phone is locked to a carrier other than Telus. I will also check the requst form.
Yes I tried both ways, I replied earlier. If you did your homework before and you knew what you were supposed to purchase you wouldn't have to deal with ebay and paypal trying to return it to get your money back now. However, I was contacted by them saying they are experiencing difficulty. Sprint iphones are usually the cheapest ones. I've tried to look for solutions online but, when I tried to sync it to my itunes it wouldn't even allow me because the phone doesn't support the sim card and it prevented itunes from reading my phone. I do not have a Verizon line and I need the iPhone activation policy to be changed to any other that works to activate the iPhone in Brazil.
