    Default Any country where Apple is selling iphone thru multiple providers.

    Is there any other country where apple is selling phones thru multiple providers.

    Here is the deal here at least.
    Provider Vodophone is way cheaper than airtell.
    But very few people have vodophone sims most are with airtell cause their network is better.

    Now if you buy a phone from vodophone you must activate it with a vodophone sim.
    If you buy a phone from airtell you must activate it with a airtell sim.

    Once activated you cant change sims.
    The phone is the same
    Itunes is the same.

    Also neither of they want you to sign any contract you just need a sim from them. It can be prepaid or post paid.
    Vodophone will even give you a free sim if you show them your airtell bill.



    So only logical conclusion is that
    a. There is a secret code in their carier bundle which lets the phone decide to work or not work.
    AND OR
    b. Apple is tracking Serial numbers thru itunes.

    Ah the joys of just getting a regular phone.

    There is no code in the carrier bundles for sure. It is done via iTunes and Apples servers when activating.

    In my carier bundle I found a list of numbers which said valid sim numbers. All where 400xxx on my phone I found multiple directories with these numbers where created.
    Its like each bunch of numbers had their own directory maybe its a city or state wise setup.

    Ive played with all these files so much. Id just like to re-download a fresh set of carier settings but dont know how to.

    Sorry, I dont know if we are talking the same story. Are you talking about the carrier bundles taht are found in /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/ on your iPhone?
