unlocked iphone... reoccuring sim failure?
k im sorry, but im new on the site cant figure out how to post my own question. I am having a similar problem.... i recently moved to Santiago, Chile. I brought my unlocked iphone down, threw in a "movistar" chip and have had no problems until the past couple weeks. EVERYTIME my phone shuts down, turns off, runs out of battery, and I end up having to "turn it back on" it goes through all these issues and wont accept the sim card. After a few days it has gotten back to working but why? Last night I updated my phone, ofcourse it reseted it, and rebooted, therefore again saying "locked simcard" then I unlock it, and it says simfailure. WTF? Am I doing something wrong? Is there something I can do to fix this? Is it possible that the simcard it worn out and the phone is having trouble reading it? or is it just a problem with the phone? I know its fully unlocked, when I was in argentina I bought a pay by the minute chip and it worked fine.... This is the first time ive had a problem....
thank you so much for your responses.
