    Default Newb! Please help!
    I bought a Iphone 4S off my friend, and it has no SIM card.
    It is on the activation screen and I need to activate and unlock it.*
    What do I need to do?

    *Ultimately to be able to plug in any SIM card and have the phone support the carrier.

    First question is: what carrier is the phone locked to, and probably originally from? Hopefully your friend knows the answer.

    Second question is: did your friend disable Find My iPhone/activation lock? Even if the phone receives a carrier unlock, it won't be much use to you if the device is asking for the original owner's e-mail and password. The original owner can go to, sign in, go to Find My iPhone, and remove the device from their list.
