    Default TurboSim works with iWorld, but not when I'm in a foreign country?

    Hey Guys!
    First of all thanks for your guides for jailbreaking and unlocking my oob iPhone 1.1.2. I have a Danish sim card wich I'm using with turbosim, and it works as it should in Denmark after I installed iWorld. The problem is now, that I'm in the Faroe Islands with my Danish simcard. I tried to set up iWorld to the Faroe Islands instead, but the SMS and Phone app just closes when I try to open it. I've received several messages but can't open them, so there's no problem with the network!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Kind Regards

    Just a thought but:
    You need to leave the Danish settings on the iphone, but include international dialing prefex when dialing numbers. I experienced a similar problem years ago while roaming in Italy with a regular handset. It was solved by including the prefex in the number I was dialing.

    Hey Tiny,
    the problem actually is that I can't even acces the phone neither the sms application now when I'm in the Faroes. It just closes down. I tried as I said, to configure iWorld to the Faroe Islands, it didn't work, and then I tried Denmark again, wondering if it had something to do with my Danish/turbo sim card. Neither worked, unfortunatly.

    interesting, i have 2 iphones, one with turbosim and the other with stealthsim.

    Both were setup in Hong Kong, and I am currently in Australia with both phones, and they still work.

    I think you have a faulty turbosim, or your SIM card really isnt from Denmark.

    Better check your SIM card.

    Hey again guys and thanks for your replies!
    To activate my SimCard in a foreign country I have to restart my phone and enter the digit 1 in the beginning of my Pin-Code, ex. 14444 if my pin is 4444. If I only enter 4444 my iPhone won't connect to the Faroese GSM-network, but i can access the SMS-application and the Phone-application - but of course I can't send messages og make calls because the phone won't connect. This works with iWorld when I've chosen Denmark, but not when I've chosen the Faroe Islands.

    If I use the 1444-pin my iPhone connects as it should to the Faroese network, but now the SMS and Phone app crash when I try to use them. I've tried to change iWorld to Faroe Islands but without luck.

    Could this have something to do with my Danish simcard? I don't understand why I have to use the digit 1 in front of my pin, but they are right - the phone connects to the foreign network. Maybe my sim card has two nationalities, on withthe 1 in front of pin and one without?

    I don't know much about the way iworld works or the problems with 1.1.2, but what I found was that my springboard was crashing when using an anysim unlocked BL 3.6 phone running 1.1.2.

    My SIM card is T-Mobile US so I never ran iWorld on it. I am now in Mexico for the holidays and my springboard would crash every time I got an SMS. I don't know about calls because I forward all my calls to a Mexican mobile. I installed iWorld for Mexico and springboard stopped crashing.

    I'm guessing that iWorld might not be setting the Faroe Islands settings properly, as it seems like iWorld needs to be set to the country that you are currently in, and not the country your SIM card is from. Maybe searching for other users with Faroese SIMs to see if someone has posted about issues with iWorld, and maybe someone will have a solution.

    This is just an assumption though.
