Come on cut them some slack.  They are obviously not a native speaker and it does seem to be a legitimate problem.

Their writing, while not grammatically correct is still very readable.

plambrechtsen: I'm 99% sure the skinny sold iPhone isn't locked since its the same network ID as Telecom. The problem is most of Telecom is on holiday (including me)

What happens if you take the phone into a Telecom store.

I haven't looked up your IMEI as my wife has barred me from my computer...





The network ID code is different on Skinny.

I have heard that some iPhones from Vodafone are not working with 2degrees sim cards. Apparently it is not an issue with the phones themselves and they are not network locked (confirmed by Apple). I'm not sure if it's just that some 2degrees sims are faulty or not provisioned correctly but it might pay to try it with a different 2degrees sim.

This may be something that is isolated to Vodafone but it sounds like a similar situation.

This only happens when handsets are swapped out by the Apple service agent and they forget to unlock them on their side,

Similar but not quite what I was referring to. What I was referring to is a different situation where some iphones (new, not warranty swap outs) are incompatible with 2degrees sim cards for some reason, despite being unlocked. At a guess I would say it has something to do with the carrier bundle firmware but I don't know enough about it to say for sure.

It may not be related to this though as it could just be a more isolated case. But I just brought it up in case it was relevant.

joutei: Salim,

I would contact skinny.
It seems to me it would be locked to skinny.

Cheers


Skinny do lock phones...if it is a Skinny (Telecom) phone. 

I think you pay $30 to get a Skinny phone unlocked.

Skinny lock *some* phones (normally the high end ones), and you can get the unlock code for the IMEI of your handset from the online portal..

But I was fairly confident that the iPhone wasn't one that was being locked, due to how Apple does it rather than every other OEM and how they supply locked phones.




I work for Telecom Spark, but as always my views are my own.

After nine months it is free to get a skinny phone unlocked.

I can only confirm the phone was dispatched from Telecom / Brightstar warehouse. I cant confirm if this phone was destined for Skinny. iPhone's sold through the Telecom channel are not SIM locked.

I would contact Skinny on 0800 475 4669 and supply them your IMEI just to check it wasnt supplied by them or locked.

If not I would contact faults on 120 to log a case and get someone to attend to it.
