    Default iPhone keeps displaying "Locked SIM"

    Hi there!

    I hope you guys can help me with the problem I'm having with my iPhone:

    I have followed the instructions to activate, jailbreak and activate my iPhone to the letter. I even went through the extra step of making sure I had the 1.0.2. firmware version. Each step of the software appears to be finished correctly (i.e. I get all the appropriate messages I see on the forums and instructions), however, when I restart my iPhone, I keep getting the same message. In stead of the name of my provider, I keep getting a "Locked SIM" message. Does anyone know what causes this problem and, ideally, how to fix it? I'd greatly appreciate any and all help on this matter!

    Cheers,
    Kiwi Leany

    "Locked SIM" in this case doesn't mean that the iPhone itself is locked... What it actually means is that your SIM card is locked with a PIN, or passcode.

    Normally, the iPhone should prompt you to enter this information to unlock your SIM card. If it is not doing this, you can try to force it to do either by attempting to make an outbound phone call, or checking your SIM card settings under Settings, Phone.

    Note that if you enter the wrong PIN code too many times, your SIM card will be permanently locked, and you will have to call your carrier to get a PUC code to unlock it. If you get to the point where you're being asked for a PUC code, do not try to guess it.... There are only a limited number of PUC attempts that are permitted before the SIM is permanently disabled.

    If you are still seeing "Locked SIM" but not being prompted for any kind of PIN or PUC code, then it's possible the SIM itself is defective and/or permanently locked out. You can try it in a different phone if you have one, and see if that helps, but otherwise you may need to get a new one from your carrier.

    OH MAN! Thank you SO much! I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was -WRONG-... But now I fixed it and it works and YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! (Is it OK if I feel really, REALLY blonde now? (Even if I'm not?)). I followed your instructions and now it works

    Thanks again! *sends all sorts of wicked positive vibes, good karma and all that*

    Hehe, i remember I fell into same trap. AnySIM said it's ok and unlocked. I've restarted and bah - still Locked SIM. It actually took 30 minutes before I took the courage to see what will happen when I touch the "Unlock" button in that dialog. Boy, how I was laughing at myself
