    Default Tele2 Iphone 4s needs activation and unlock
    Hi guys, am new here and have spent days and nights reading all I can on the internet, but with no success. so please can someone help and explain to me in simple English how I can use an Iphone 4s I bought from a friend, he used it on Tele2 sweden, the phone tells me invalid sim and needs activation when I try to activate, no success since the sim is not an official carrier.
    I contacted Tele2 they say I need to pay and they can unlock and activate but they require that I get someone in sweden to do it for me since they need a social security number for someone living in sweden to do it. I try to use redsn0w and it tells me the phone has to be activated first it's an

    That will not work. The phone narayaleal receives in exchange for his current device will inherit its carrier profile--in other words, the phone will still be locked to Tele2 of Sweden--it'll basically be a waste of shipping charges, plus the phone received in return will probably be on iOS 6.1.3 and thus unjailbreakable.

    Narayaleal, if you don't have anyone in Sweden who is able to help you, you may want to contact a third-party unlocking service who will unlock your phone for a (not small) fee. I'd recommend the Chronic (of Chronic-Dev) Unlocks service personally.

    Kindly get the phone factory unlock from some of professional iphone unlocking websites so that you could use the phone with any SIM card.
