[TurboSIM] Only worked for a minute
Today I received my TurboSIM after a long wait. I was fairly prepared for this, my phone (1.1.2 OBL 4.6) was already jailbroken and ready to go, plus I had put TurboSIM on my cousins phone which is still working without problems. I was expecting it to fly by smoothly and boy have I been let down.
I went through the tutorial without problems. Everything seemed to work fine. At which point I inserted my Swedish Tele2 SIM card into the phone with the TurboSIM, again everything seemed normal. The Tele2 Comviq showed up at the top left of phone and it was getting good reception.
Ready to celebrate victory, I decided to call myself from a friends phone, and here the walls begin to crash. When we called with his phone, my iPhone never rang instead the little spinning icon showed up in the center of my home screen and stayed there for the duration of the call. When we hung up, the iPhone went back to normal and even displayed one missed call in the phone icon.
Before attempting anything else I tried to view the missed called, I would click on the "phone" icon in the bottom left of the dock, and enter that menu. However attempting to then select "Recents" would crash the application and send me back to the home screen. This happened over and over again.
Starting to lose my faith, I decided to try making a call. This worked without any problems. Thank god for that.
So then I tried to receive a call again and was faced with the same problem. Instead of the phone ringing the spinning icon comes up on the home screen and spins away until the other phone ends the calls or it goes to voice mail.
At this point I don't really know what to do, as it seems I have a half working iPhone. I decided to try to shut the phone off and turn it back on. In hopes that it would work better ... boy was I wrong.
When I turned it back on I got an error "Incorrect SIM - This iPhone must be used with an approved SIM"
I've been stuck on that error ever since.
The weird thing is that the AppleSaft stuff is all missing now, if I go to "Settings / Phone" the only option is "SIM PIN" there is no longer "SIM APPLICATIONS," which was there for the short period it was working.
I am getting the "Incorrect SIM" error with both my Swedish Tele2 SIM card and with the iPhone's original AT&T card, when inserted with the TurboSIM. The only diference between the two is that TurboSIM + my Swedish Tele2 SIM card will eventually go to a NO SIM message, while the AT&T & Turbo SIM will just show one small bar of reception.
I really don't know what to do, but I did try to reinstall TurboSIM in terminal via ssh. This time when I typed "turbo-info" and hit enter in Terminal I got this error:
So there is my situation, hope the post wasn't too lenghty and that everything is easy to follow. I really don't know what to do, my original thought was to try and reset everything, both my iPhone and the TurboSIM. However I'm not sure how I would go about reseting my TurboSIM.
I figured it out and things are working perfectly now. I messed up the TurboSIM by selecting the Apple Saft stuff twice, so I needed to reset the TurboSIM.
The call crashing was due to me not having installed iWorld.
just a query, is it that one has to install iworld after putting newchip+*SIM or one can go ahead and install i world on FA+JB 1.1.2 and then later put sim ...
Thanks in advance
