So on my phone, I have a screen showing an image if the iphone cable plugging into itunes.
At the bottom if the slider and it says slide for emergency.
If i slide that I can make an emergency call.
Top bar of the phone shows no signal, and a lock icon.
Ive tried another sim card that I know works, and I get the same issue. Ive also tried doing a restore on the phone.
I tried taking a picture which I attached.
Anyone have any ideas?

The phone isnt activated. If your using ATT then you need to plug the phone into itunes (hence the plug into itunes picture) and let it activate.

When I plug the phone into iTunes it says that the sim card is not supported.

You will need an ATT simcard. Or restore using a custom pwned FW file that is already activated....if possible. You didnt specify what model phone you have, what FW or anything.

As cpjr said, the only way to get access to the phone is inserting an official provider sim.

Thanks everyone. Found out it was a Fido phone. If I put a Fido sim card in the phone lights up.
