iphone 3g bought direct from Apple's website .is it locked to a provider

I have been given an iphone 3g that was bought direct from the Apple website several years ago, and I would like to know if its locked to any particular provider.
It was back in the days when only O2 were offering iphone contracts, but the phone was never registered to O2 - it was unlocked with some third party software. Im now looking to upgrade the software to the latest version through iTunes but dont want the phone to become locked (and I dont really know what Im doing to try and unlock it with third party tools).
Someone told me that iphones bought direct from Apples website are not locked to any provider, but I want to know if this is true of my old 3G that was bought back when O2 had exclusive rights.
Im looking to use it with a UK Vodafone SIM.

my son locked himself out of his iPhone 4 now the phone is disabled I went into iTunes and it sent me back to the phone to enter code The only key pad available is for emergency calls only How do I restore usage of this phone

Please help!

My son locked himself out of his Iphone.  Now the phone is disabled and the only ablitlty on the phone is to call emergency.

The screen instructs to go to Itunes; however, in doing so, Itunes sent me back to the phone to enter the passcode. The phone doesnt give an option for that.  Again, all I can do is call emergency if I needed to.

Apple ID locked post changing it

I had posted earlier a question which was resolved quickly and accurately http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2670578&tstart=0 and later on I was able to change my ID to the correct email address.
One of the App Sores, I think on the iPad and the iTunes on the Mac Book Pro was still using the other session with the incorrect ID.. it kept functioning till I think it refreshed and was kicked out of the server.
Now I tried to re-enter into iTunes with the correct ID and it took me to the payment information for me to verify that information before making purchases as was written.
When I continue through that process, it comes back with a popup window saying Your request is temporarily unable to be processed. Please try again later..
Is this temporary and because of perhaps scheduled maintenance, or have I caused my account to be locked? I tried it from two iPhones, 3GS and a 4, still same error.
Looking forward to be helped.
Thank you.

My phone was jailbroken but connected through Bell after I bought it Recently today I upgraded to 4.3.4 and now have no date or phone - SIM card not recognized Any ideas

Not really sure how this works, but here  goes.

I bought an IPhone on EBay over a year ago.


I found out I had to have it jailbroken since it had already been connected to AT&T.

I did that and hooked up to Bell and it has beens working fine ever since.

Today, foolishly, after phoning the Apple Store and being told it was perfectly OK, I upgraded to 4.3.4

Now it does not recognize the SIM card.

Is there anyway to correct this?

My own stupidity.



AT&T bought iphone to Apple Genius Bar

Okay sorry if this has been posted before but I cannot seem to find it using the Search forum.
So if I purchase the iphone 4 via AT&T store, and say I have found some defects, would I have to take it to the AT&T store or can I take it to the Apple Genius Bar and have them take a look at it? What about the iphone 4 that was purchased via AT&T online store?

iPhone bought in US Authorized Apple carrier in Colombia

Hi, I recently bought an iPhone 4 (FW 4.2.1) in the US (last week). I live in Colombia (Latin America), and my mobile phone line is from an authorized Apple carrier here (Movistar - Telefonica).
The problem is: iTunes says my MicroSIM Card is not supported. I called Movistar and they entered my iPhones IMEI in their system and linked to my mobile phone number, and said I had to wait for 2 hours.
After 4 hours, iTunes still doesnt recognize my Movistar MicroSIM as supported. Movistar say theres nothing else they can do, so... Who can? If Movistar is an Apple supported carrier here, why iTunes does not recognize my MicroSIM. What can I do?
Thanks in advance.

iPhone 3GS warranty if bought from Apple Store Online

I bought an iPhone 3GS (unlocked) directly from Apple.com.au (the australian apple site) while living i Australia. Recently the on/off button is not working very well, I have tried to restore to no avail...
Now I moved from Australia, taking my iPhone with me to another country (Sweden). Here they only sell the device with special plans and locked to certain operators. I do have the receipt from the purchase from the Apple store in Australia. Does this still mean I have to send it to Australia to get it fixed? After all it is unlocked and bought directly from Apple, ie no purchase ala international-orders.com/ebay etc?
That would def. suck as the device is fairly new and it would cost me a lot in money and time to fix it. What do you think?

I bought an iPhone 4 in an Apple Store in Paris France to take it with me to England but does not work at all


recently I bought an iPhone 4 in an Apple Store in Paris, France, to take it with me to England and use it.  Bought however it does not work

However, back home, i wanted to activate the phone with a micro SIM card but everytime it says The SIM card in this iPhone does not appear to be supported, and could not activate the phone. But they cant see that there is anything wrong with the SIM cards i buy it is unlocked phone too.

I tried a micro SIM from another carrier but get the same result all the time, nothing seems to help. All I get is The SIM card in this iPhone does not appear to be supported...

The people at the Apple Store Opera in Paris, where I bought the phone, confirm that the phone is supposed to be unlocked and should work with any carrier in any country (as long as they support micro SIM).
