    Default iPhone 5 help
    Recently bought a used iPhone 5 which was supposedly unlocked (it was bought unlocked)

    Turns out EE or Apple somehow locked it when the sim card was used to activate it.

    Anyways i'm stuck with a iPhone 5 which won't work with my vodafone sim and kicks me off whenever I put it back in with the message 'SIM Not Valid' and needs activating.

    Any way round this? As EE are being dicks about letting it go.

    You were scammed. It's network locked. Only EE can unlatch it for you and probably won't do so unless you satisfy certain conditions. See below
