Thread: Removing "No SIM Installed" - 3gs as Ipod Touch

    Default Removing "No SIM Installed" - 3gs as Ipod Touch
    Since upgrading to the Iphone 4, I've decided to use my old 3GS as an Ipod touch. My question is, is there anyway to modify a setting to remove the "No SIM Installed" message when unlocking the lockscreen, especially when respringing? I've tried the iPhone to iPod package in cydia but it still show up. It's not really a big deal, just kind of annoying so any help will be appreciated. Thanks!!!

    You could try an app called FakeCarrier or MakeItMine (in Cydia), they change the carrier text. I'm not sure if it works when there's no sim installed, worth a shot tho

    Buy a prepaid SIM, would that work? It would just display no service or searching right? But the pop up won't happen, I believe. Done this with my inactive T-Mo SIM on unlocked iPhone 3G before the device went up to sell, and it just showed no service.

    Smile best solution
    Why don't you trade for an i touch 3rd gen an some cash. I am desperately looking for an iphone 3GS while my itouch 32GB sit in my garage for months. If you live nearby I can give you 100-150 bucks and my almost new itouch 32gb 3rd gen plus a lots of thanks go with it

    That's why you tell them you switch between both devices. This is why you have a SIM card in the first place.
