Thread: Tracfone SIM Card with iPhone 3G?

  1. #1
    Default Tracfone SIM Card with iPhone 3G?
    Is there any way that I'd be able to use a Tracfone SIM card with a newly bought iPhone 3G if I unlocked/jailbroke it?

    sure. if you unlocked it, which is not possible yet with software.

    iPhone Dev Team should have an unlocking software soon... So just wait until that happens and you'll be able to use it

    Sorry guys but you're both incorrect...

    Although prepaid service providers like TracFone and NET 10 are both GSM, the software / service type is different and proprietary. That is why you cannot use a TracFone / NET 10 SIM cards on any unlocked GSM phone and vice versa.

    TracFone SIM cards have been known to "lock Up" unlocked GSM phones requiring a hard reset or removal of the battery to reset the phone...

    I have iPhone 3G with a Straightalk sim and everything is working fine. I jailbroke, installed supreme settings, enabled sup sett. in winterboard, enabled cellular data editing, then changed the apns to say 'att.mvno' on both cell and mms. Do not unlock the phone if u have an att ST sim. The only problem I'm having is my VVM isn't working.
