    Angry VERY VERY IMPORTANT - blocking iphone on carrieres switches

    hi,
    it seems there is a contract between siemens and apple to block unlocked iphone on simense mobile switches,
    all of iphones is our area has stopped to work from last week,
    we can s/r sms as, we can dialout too but there is no "call in" on our iphones,


    I 've talked with my carrier technical support to comfirm that, and them told me a new patch from siemens blocked unlocked iphone,

    anyone can confirm it?!

    I can not confirm.

    I am in Munich, Germany using T-Mobile Network with Prepaid SIM. Yesterday Austria (A1). I can not imagine, that concurrent providers would block their own SIM-Cards. Even T-Mobile would not block their own profit.

    What is your Location?

    I am not sure if it is legal... we would need to get an advice from a lawyer.....

    I still wonder why do they sell Iphones without ATT plan if it is supposed not to work without ATT plan....

    Guy's this is the funny thing i've ever heard.

    1. The "unlocked" iPhone had exactly the same identification string as one with a T-Mobile or AT&T lock. (Think about roaming!)

    2. Here in germany we have 4 providers, T-Mobile, E-Plus, O2 and Vodafone. So every provider exept T-Mobile had to upgrade his switches to block the iPhone?

    3. Here in germany its illegal to do this. I spoke with O2 business support contact of mine and she was laugh out loud about this story

    I think there must be a confusion by your provider but i can not imagine that this is because an "unlocked" (see first) iphone
