Thread: SimCard Probs.. HELP!! iTunes

    Default SimCard Probs.. HELP!! iTunes
    Please help me out on this... ive found many solutions in Google but afraid to try it since the page i visited is not the updated ones...

    Well i just bought a new iPhone 3GS fro UK... it is sealed thus it is not been activated!

    well it was sent internationally and when it arrived, i believe that it was not factory unlocked so when i sync to iTunes, it says "The sim card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported"

    as far as i know.. it is baseband 05.12 and ver 3.1.3 cause i found this using tinyumbrella cause i want to save my SHSH blobs..

    so yea.. im stuck at that part... what can i do to solve this? ive read on the sites recommending using blackra1n if its 3.1.2 ..

    i planned to jB using spirit as that is the most recommended now... so my question is.. since the iTunes are stuck in that part.. can i just continue to click spirit to jailbreak it.. cause the only thing the phone can do know is emergency... need reply ASAP.. thanks!

    Spirit doesn't hacktivate, you will need a ATT sim. Or official sim from where the phone came from.

    i tried my bro O2 simcard and its still not working.. what am i suppose to do? well i see that the box does not come from AT&T.. will using AT&T simcard will help activate all iphones?

    bump! ive read in the apple help that Uk iphones official activate is O2 ... however i tried O2 sim and it is not working...! still the problem persist... is it possible that a single carrier locked it to use the iphone just for their simcard? eventhough O2 is the offivial activate for the iPhone? please provide any explanations, help and suggestions.. so sad

    i just found out that the phone is on 3 network... so my question is, do the PAYG 3 simcard will also activate the iphone? i email the company and sadly their reply is that they cannot provide any help due to im not rightful owner of the phone since i buy it from other people.. theyre really arent helping...please reply
