How can I find out which Carrier the phone is locked to ?
I have recently bought an iPhone 3G, however due to my then lacking knowledge, I updated it to the latest firmware and baseband 02.30.03 .
The guy had told me that it was locked to Fido before. However even with a Fido sim card I only get 1 tiny signal bar with no connection or ability to make calls.
Is there a way to find out which carrier the phone is locked to without having the sim card for that carrier?
Thanks a lot!
Hi. Click Settings > General > About. Look at what it says next to Model.
If it says any of the ones below then Fido is the official carrier for that iphone:
It indeed says MB636C on it. However, with the SIM i only have half of the first bar. Should I restore with itunes to 2.2.1 (since it already got the damn update) and then try with my brother's Fido sim card you think ?
Thanks a ton for the superb help
P.S. Is there a list to know which models are for which carriers ?

Did you read the thread? It tells you most of what you need to know to work this out.

with the model number, you can find out at least what country/region the iPhone is intended for. It is not always possible to narrow it down to a single carrier.
