Does Nextel Sim Work with Unlocked Iphone anybody
Hi, I'm wondering if anybody knows if a Nextel Sim Card works with an unlocked Iphone. I just purchased a Stealth Sim and I jailbroke my Iphone but it says No sim when I install the Stealth sim with my sim card. I'm wondering if its the carrier Nextel or am I doing something wrong?
No GSM phone will work with a Nextel/Boost SIM Card
Totally incompatible systems/networks, just will not see the sim
Nextel in the USA uses the IDEN network which is NOT GSM. The iPhone is only a GSM phone. Therefore you cannot use a Nextel SIM in the iPhone because the phone will not talk to the iDen network.
That being said - (and just to confuse issues) it would be possible to use your nextel sim in the iPhone out of the USA but only if 1) you have international service activated with Nextel 2) you're nextel sim is one of the newer ones which work in their phones like the i930 (which is an iDen and a quad-band GSM phone) 3) you want to pay their insanely high international roaming charges.
Hope that helped answer your question. If anything was unclear than the short answer is "no" you can't use a nextel sim in the iPhone.
