Iphone says insert valid sim with no pin lock
There is no PIN Lock on the phone, checked it on a Blackberry and it works just fine. Did what Apple suggested and have done a restore. When switching on the phone again, it still shows the same error message. Is there perhaps something else I can do that might solve the problem?
After a week of having this phone, I still cannot activate it.
Last resort, I am going to the Apple Shop today to get it sorted out. Just wanted to know if I have explored all means before having to resport to taking time off work to go there.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Hi All, a noob Im afraid, so bear with me. I recently got a second-hand 3GS (activated), and a friend tried to unsuccessfully unlock it. I had to restore to factory settings, BUT of course, the phone is now asking me to insert a valid sim etc. My question is, can ANY AT&T sim be used to activate it, such as a pay as you go/use type? I dont really want a 2yr contract etc.

Help. I arrived in the UK this morning and bought a 3 pre-paid nano-SIM from the vending machine at Heathrow. I put it into my Australian-purchased unlocked 5S and got the following message:
SIM Not Valid
The SIM card that you currently have installed in this iPhone is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. Please insert another SIM card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked by your carrier.
I am beyond furious as I specifically bought an unlocked phone and the 3 SIM to avoid problems when travelling internationally. Can anyone tell me what is going on here and how to fix it?
what do i do when the phone tells me to insert sim card, when theres a sim card in it already
I am trying to update to 3.0 after having cancelled my contract. Ive moved out of the country and intend to use it as a wireless device only. However, I cannot update to 3.0 without a valid SIM. My phone is now a brick; iTunes simply tells me it cannot complete the process without a valid SIM.
iPhone 3G iPhone OS 2.x
I restored my Iphone 3GS after i had some problems with 4.1 but now I need a valid/activation SIM but i dont trust buying from the internet and I cant find it either on the apple site. THe closest premium reseller is about 30 km away from me.
I heard the SIM comes with the Iphone but i never got the SIM.
So my question is where can i get a SIM in belgium?
Compaq Mini iOS 4
My new iPhone 4 asks me to connect to itunes every time i insert a new micro-sim card.
I just got a new iPhone 4 on warranty at the Apple Store, the genius plugged the phone on a computer and activated it for the first time with my Fido micro-sim in it, and it got activated.
Although if I switch the micro sim to a Bell or Rogers one, the phone changes screens and shows me the connect to itunes screen... Does that mean that my iPhone is Locked or Unlocked?

I updated to the iOS5, then I hooked up my NON-jailbroken 3GS. After updating everything this message appears:
The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported.
I took my phone to my carrier, AT&T, and they cleaned the SIM card, didnt work. They replaced the SIM card, it didnt work. Tried to restore my phone, didnt work.
So I had put a lock on my IPhone and forgot the pin number! I am now locked out! It says to connect to itunes so I did but nothing has happene my phone is still locked! Someone help!
just updated to iOs 5 on an AT&T iphone 4....says sim card not valid
Since I updated to 2.2 my iPhone no longer asks for my SIM pin after a restart.
If I reset the pin it works as it should for a while but if I reset the iPhone the problem reoccurs.
I did a restore but the problem persists. Any ideas?

Can you take SIM cards out of American iphone4 to insert prepaid SIM cards? I did not realize there was a difference between American and Australian iPhones.
No Service when valid SIM card inserted in iPhone 3GS. iTunes occasionally reads valid SIM phone number while phone still says No Service. I have tried everything and NOTHING has worked. The phone had two bars of service once, while it was connected to iTunes, for about a minute then went back to No Service. I bought it used from Game Stop in really nice condition. I would like to get this problem fixed, as I need a better phone than what I had previously. Please help!
Why does my iPhone 4 say SIM not valid after I updated to ios 5? Also, is there anything I can do to fix it?
So I enabled my SIM card pin. My question is, shouldnt the iPhone prompt me to enter my pin number on restart? Similar to when you enable the passcode function.

Greetings, Ive got my iPhone as a gift from my brother which lives in US;
As he used it at the start, he bought it as not officially unlocked, because he lives at US... but sadly when i got my iPhone I live in Jordan, and the sim is locked, i dont want to try any kind of hacks or cracks that might wipe my OS.
Is there any way that i can turn my not officially unlocked iPhone into an officially unlocked one ? i am willing to pay cash for this just so that my iPhone gets officially unlocked

Iphone says insert valid sim with no pin lock
I bought a used 3GS (UK) and restored and updated it. But, I forgot to check which carrier its on. iTunes is asking for a sim card to be put in before it can be activated. How can I find out which carrier its meant to be on? The seller doesnt know as he just buys and sells them.
