Re: network unlocking code

Hi, i received a text message yesterday from O2  informing me that Apple have confirmed the iPhone IMEI xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is set to unlock. To complete, connect the device to iTunes with a SIM never used in the iPhone. 

 

I tried this, but i don't if it's working or not. it just keeps on searching. hoping to resolve my problem soon.

Thank you very much.

Re: network unlocking code

Try restoring the iPhone through iTunes, but make sure everything is backed up first.

Re: network unlocking code

pretty sure you should use the original sim when unlocking?

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3198

 

If your carrier has unlocked your iPhone, after connecting your iPhone to iTunes, you should see this message:

"Unlock Complete. Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked. To set up and sync this iPhone, click Continue."

This article explains what to do if you do not see the above message, or if iTunes displays this message:

"The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported carrier store."

Products Affected

iPhone

Resolution

Only some carriers offer the ability to unlock iPhone for use on any carrier. After a carrier applies an unlock, connecting your iPhone to iTunes allows iTunes to unlock your iPhone. iTunes displays the "unlock complete" message above the first time you connect a newly unlocked iPhone (or an unlocked iPhone that has been restored).

Note: Restoring an iPhone requires the unlock to be reapplied to the iPhone. iTunes displays the "unlock complete" message above after the restore completes.

 Follow these steps to troubleshoot unlock issues. Test after each step.

  1. Reseat the SIM card: Remove the SIM card in your iPhone and then reinsert it.
  2. Restore your iPhone. Note that the computer you are using to restore the iPhone needs to be connected to the Internet. You can verify the connection by loading the first page of the iTunes Store.
  3. Contact your carrier to verify that the unlock was applied in their system.



There is a subtle principle that resides within all of us, which is unborn and undying. It is bliss infinite and the giver of supreme happiness.It is our inner Guru.

Re: network unlocking code

it doesn't even display this message iTunes displays this message:

"The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported carrier store."

when you mean iTunes, it's only the screen that shows the device that's connected? if in case, it will just appear on the screen like a note?  i don't have the original SIM, what can i do?

Re: network unlocking code

Hi

If you are unlocking a iPhone, you have to use a sim card that was never used in the iPhone before to unlock it
