    Default How to activate a factory unlocked iPhone from Italy

    Hi,

    I am thinking about buying a factory unlocked iPhone from Italy. I remember reading somewhere that I still need to "Activate" it, but I can't find the post now.

    My question is, what will I need to do to "Activate" it? I seem to remember that it doesn't matter where I am (I am in the United States), or what Mac, or iTunes, I'm using, but that I just need to use the SIM that the phone originally came with, have that in the phone when plugging it into iTunes the first time, and then it will be unlocked for life, even after updating to a newer software. Is that correct?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    You should be able to use any sim card to activate it in an officially unlocked iphone. You do not need the sim that comes with it.

    Correct, i do have one of those. Just insert your private simcard anywhere in the world, connect the iPhone to itunes and it will be activated/unlocked. no problem at all.

    Agreed, I have a iPhone from Italy and never needed the original SIM to activate or unlock, any SIM works. I'm in Ireland.
