    Default Iphone unlocked but cant receive calls

    Im in South Africa. Ive managed to unlock my Iphone and can send and receive sms's and make calls, but i cant receive calls.its permanently engaged. I called my service provider and they says its a sign of a blacklisted phone.

    Anyone else have this issue or a possible fix?

    Right now this is happening in Kuwait with one of the service providers MTC.

    People with an unlocked iPhone cannot receive calls when they use MTC. However, when they switch to the competing carrier Wataniya, it works!

    I'm not really sure why this happens, but just thought I'd confirm the issue

    same thing in Malaysian Maxis,
    I've called them and they say they will try something for it.
    I think its call forwarding issue

    Odd. Is it not a SIM problem or SIM version problem?

    i had the same problem here in Thailand with AIS. works fine with DTAC. I know others have got the software unlock working with AIS so I'm thinking it might be a SIM version issue. I had exactly the same problems when using the Turbo SIM method. at the time I thought by was to do with the fact that the network somehow knew I was up to mischeif but it seems thats not the case as the software unlock doesnt work by trcking the phone into believing its using an AT@T SIM.

    My AIS SIM was a few years old. I dont know if those of u that are having these problems are also using old'ish SIMs. if u r then it may be worth asking your provider for a new SIM.

    clutching at straws perhaps?

    i thought it was a call forwarding issue as did AIS but it wasnt. cancelled all diverts and still same problem.

    I had exactly the same problem here in Kenya with SAFARICOM. I thought at first that it was the SIM card (which is 5 years old), but then I tried it with a new one and same problem. I then bought a prepaid from another carrier, CELTEL, and this now works fine. My guess is it has something to do with the carrier's network. Cheers.

    Question

    how can the network provider know,
    what you´re using iPhone?

    I seen the same thing jostboart , i also live in South africa. Strange thing is, Other South Africain providers USE vodacoms towers , even know they a seprate company. And they work ? (cellc,virgin).

    Another strange thing is, if you are currently CALLING someone, and someone tries to call you, the call comes through >?
