    Default att iphone 5
    ok so i bought an att iphone 5 from a friend i bought a ebay unlock code and received confirmation. I restored and updated, have latest itunes and have the tmobile nano sim card in the iphone. but i am still stuck in activation screen stating The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported.
    This iPhone is not currently setup to work with carrier you're attempting to use. Please insert another SIM card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked.

    what can i do to bypass this or what did i do wrong? im dying without a phone lol

    Sounds like it wasn't actually unlocked by this ebay person.

    it shows that i have service and the edge logo is on the top if that matters

    Aah ok, ya. It does that at the activation screen sometimes. You need to follow up with the ebay person about the unlock, especially if they say it has gone through. You wouldn't be getting sim card not supported message if it was indeed unlocked.

    I don't think those online IMEI checks are working right now.
