Hell - p Iphone 4
I got back from the UK and wanted to use my Iphone4 in Pakistan. I got a micro-sim for my mobile and when i inserted it, it does not show any network but just shows a single bar as the signal indicator. No calls can be made or received. I tried doing a network reset and since then i've come to notice an unusual icon on the top right corner. [image attached for convenience]..
Also, besides the new icon, any help with as to how to ensure that i can start using my iphone 4 in Pakistan would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
and i just realized i dont know how to add/post a pciture of the situation!
Was the phone you purchased in the UK an unlocked phone? They are not by default, and they will need to be unlocked prior to switching to an alternate carrier. Also, for the sake of future questions, what iOS version are you running and what baseband is your phone on?
The strange icon is probably the TTY one. Apple has a good document explaining what all the built-in status bar icons mean. I've linked to it within the last week or so. Search for it.
Aside from that @n1ckn4m3 is 100% correct - you should have made sure to get the phone officially unlocked before you left the UK. It's your best option long-term. Nice to see you back and active again @n1ckn4m3
