    Have you tried the sim card in any other phone at all? Perhaps it's just a damaged sim, which obviously wouldn't work in an unlocked phone no matter what you do.

    Yes that's a good question. I would imagine Apple wouldn't tell you a phone isn't locked to any carrier if it was.

    Ive got 10+ SIMS, all tried...all brand new from the carriers. So its not the SIM.

    So, it's factory unlocked, right?

    Save your SHSH blobs and take it to apple then.

    If it's supposed to be factory unlocked, it doesn't matter which SIM you put in. So Apple specifically told you it wasn't locked to any carrier at all? If a universal activation SIM doesn't work, then there's something wrong with the phone.

    So either get the SIM or take it to Apple. Whichever comes first faster.

    Are you sure you didnt just tell Apple on the phone that it was a uk phone so they just assumed it would be unlocked? Did you actually give them any info about the phone like serial, imei etc?

    I dont think anything is wrong with it, I just think it is a locked iphone from what he is describing

    Hi both, Apple 100% said it wasnt locked, twice now... I gave the IMEI and they checked. I also have 5 Iphones all the same....and 10 SIMS...Had em a few months now...constantly decreasing in value, thats why its so important i unlock them + i want one for my self.
    They are all direct from apple btw.

    Dude, I'm sorry if this comes off as a bit snippy, but what do you expect us to do? We've given you all of the proper instructions but you seem to not listen to any of it. Why don't you just take them to Apple or to a licensed carrier and have them look at them?

    Now you have five iPhones, none of which work? Well, I've got a new idea why that is but I think I shall keep it to myself for now...

    All there really is to it now is to either take it to Apple or get a universal SIM

    And id rather a link to a specific Universal sim, so i know 100% it'll work .
    Regards
    ok... if im reading this correctly itunes is saying that the sim card is not supported... does this leave your phone on emergency calls only? or are you able to get into the home screen?

    what im trying to get at is... if you're able to get into the homescreen, connect to a wifi network, jb your phone, and then use ultrasn0w to unlock...

    im relatively new but i figure something has to give.

    Lol, as said, course i cant get into the home screen, it'd be straight forward from there obv.

    That's why he needs a universal activation SIM

    To get past the emergency call screen.
