    Default I just bought but I don't know the carrier ?!?
    Hi mmi members I need your help. I thought I had bought an Roger's iPhone but it's says ''No service'' Then I've tried with a Fido sim card and still the same. How can I determine wich carrier is the iPhone?

    If you run winpwn or pwnage and unlock the phone then it will work on ANY compatible provider.

    The iPhone 3g cannot be unlocked and even if it were you only have choice between Fido or Rogers in Canada. You have to have a contract when you buy an iPhone 3G which means on of these 4 things in your situation:

    1. Someone bought an iPhone to get the 6gb plan and took the sim card to use the plan on another device as a blackberry. And sold the iPhone to you. iPhones without contract cost at least $600 so that guy really wanted that 6gb plan and didnt care for the iPhone and probably sold it for $200 lol.

    2. Your sim card isnt activated

    3. You stole that Phone

    4. Somethings screwed up in the Phone.
