Hi All

Switched my iPhone from Vodafone to Telecom a couple of weeks ago and was having some battery issues so I sent the iPhone away for repair. The phone was replaced but now it does not recoginize the ANY Telecom XT Sim card.

I suspect Vodafone has put a block on Telecom sim cards in the firmware.

I have set the cellular data apn to direct.telecom.co.nz but as soon as plug in my SIM card I get the "emergency calls only" screen on the phone.

Has anyone got any suggestions on how I can get the damned thing working?

Thanks

Dan

Vodafone NZ do NOT SIM lock devices including the Iphone 3G or Iphone 3Gs this is written all over geekzone and many other NZ sites

Have you checked the iphone is not locked to GSM / 2G only?

Yes ..all turned on. As soon as I put in my Telecom SIM card ...the phone goes in to the 'Emergency Calls Only' mode.

Thanks
