    Default yellowsn0w in Panama

    Given that both Movistar (Telefonica) and Movil (C&W) are giving SIM's that require PIN, the current version of yellowsn0w 0.91 will not work. If you have an old SIM you are in luck. Everyone else will just have to wait until a new version arrives. I'll test it with a Digicel SIM later on today. Cheers, CEB

    Default Not working on Movistar

    I have movistar SIM without PIN... I manage to get signal but lost it after I tried to call...
    so far no better success... still trying

    edit1: managed to get everything working fine... tested and it was working very fine. Then I wanted to restart to see what happens... now the same story, can not get network..

    Seems like yellowsn0w is close to deal with 2.28 but still not close enough

    Panama Movistar - I manage to learn how to get signal:
    1. network restore (goes to restart)
    2. waiting 1 minute (sim inside/no signal)
    3. take sim out - turn on airplane mode - put sim in - 10sec - airplane mode off
    4. I get the signal

    The bad thing is that CALLS ARE NOT WORKING !!!

    Anyone tried going to C&W and request them to remove the PIN from the SIM?

    It's not possible...
    C&W don't accept no pin on chip...
    Movistar no problem...
    And Digicel idem to Movistar...

    Good luck

    They will not remove it... It's their corporate policy.

    can you describe how you did it? according to the release notes yellowsn0w is not working with PIN active SIM's.

    Thanks

    my statement was wrong, it is not possible to unlock with SIM-with-PIN but it is possible to use it after you unlock it with SIM card that doesn't have PIN code

    so, first you get network with nonPINed SIM card (prepaid Movistar can do) and then change with any other simcard...

    always when you reboot iPhone, you need that nonPINed SIM in iPhone to get the signal first...
