Do you Own an Apple iphone or Apple iPad ?

Well this will be a yes for many millions of people around the world. None of us like to wait & to obtain an Iphone or Ipad before its official release in the our home countries. Many of you would have asked a cousin or friend who lives in the country where the iphone or ipad is released first to purchase one and send over to you.

This is a great way to to get your hands on your favourite gadgets early. However thier are some things that are often over looked and this blog article will help you understands its benefits and pitfalls.

Benefits of Obtaining a Apple iphone or ipad from another country ?

Well you get to have one of the latest gadgets to use before others. You can be one step ahead and understand the latest technology on offer and benefit from the 1000’s of applications already available Officially from apple itunes store.

Pitfalls of Obtaining a Apple iphone or ipad from another country ?

This bit is really important if you purchase an locked device which is not Sim Free and can work with only one provider unless you use unlock software on higher firmwares like 3.0 3.1.2 & 3.1.3 & 4.0 or you can use the Permanent Official  itunes Factory Unlock for UK 02 or UK Vodafone.

The way Apple products work when it comes to firmware updates on itunes is a bit tricky. If you are using a Sim Free iphone 2G 3G or 3G then this does not apply to you, but if you are using a locked iphone 2G 3G 3GS  iphone 4 or ipad then we will show you how you can easily by pass the Apple products Activation Checks after firmware updates on itunes.

What to do when the inevitable happens & your  iphone  or ipad software crashes and you need to restore the firmware via itunes.

What all of you will have experience at some time or another is the iphone or ipad will crash and then you need to connect this to itunes to restore the firmware on the device.

Itunes will flash the iphone or ipad with either your choice of custom firmware if you keep hold of Shift while pressing restore or it will download the latest from Apple which you want to avoid as this will update the baseband software also and the chances are that unlock software will not be available for some time for that Baseband firmware.

Either way once you have updated the firmware then its nessasry to Activate the phone with a network simcard from the same provider its locked on to. This way its possible to get past the screen where it says connect to itunes and can then access the other features of the Device.

Question ?

I purchased an  iphone/ipad  and i don’t know the network the phone is locked on to and the phone is stuck at the connect to itunes screen and i don’t have the original network simcard or knowledge on how to create & Flash custom firmware files .

What Can i do too get past this Activation Screen to be able access the device function so i can at least use the phones other features even its not possible to unlock for now ?

Answer

Their are a few solutions to the problem and  i will elaborate more

  1. Most obvious one is to have a network simcard of the same network as the iphone or ipad is locked on to. So if i know that the iphone or ipad is locked on to Vodafone for example then after a firmware update on itunes i would need to have a vodafone simcard in the device to be able to gain entry to the device and will be able pass the activation on itunes.
  2. Create a Custom ipsu or Dmg Firmware which is already hacktivated using some special tools and these can only be used with Apple Mac computers and then flash this newly created firmware to the device so you can by pass the activation check all together. But this is not possible for all firmwares and not available for all Apple iphone and ipad firmwares and not the Latest 4.0 OS on the ipad or iphone 4 as those are too new and wont be supported for some time
  3. Use special Rebel activation by pass sim cards that dont need programming and  can auto detect the  network code settings to fool iphones or ipads in to thinking they have a same network in order to get past the activation screen.

All you need to do is take your non-activated iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, or 4 and leave it unplugged from iTunes

not activated

Then, take the activation SIM and place it in the phone (if working with an iPhone 4, you will need to cut it down to a micro-sim if you did not specify RebelSimCard to send you one pre-cut):

insert sim

Finally, plug the iPhone into iTunes (your computer) and the activation screen will then be bypassed, thus giving you access to the phone:

bypassed

NOTE:  this does NOT actually active the iPhone, nor does it unlock it.  Itonly bypasses the activation screen to allow you to use it at least as an iPod Touch (until an unlock is available for iPhone 4 / iOS4 if you are in that situation).   To show this, once I put an O2 sim card in my iPhone 4 (which is locked to O2), I then get an “iPhone is activated” message:

activated

The Rebel Simcard Team Are Happy To announce the Completion of a secret project code named Appleusersmicrobrain.

Dont be fooled in to thinking this is to do with Neural Networks and Mind games or artificial intelligance. The code name implies any one who owns or wants to own Apple products posses’s a micro sized brain and enjoys throwing thier good money down the gutter.

This codename gave the Rebel Simcard Team members who worked on the project a great incentive as they knew they would be saving users around the world a lot of money by providing an easy option to use their existing Mini network Simcards and convert them to the Micro Sim Format.

Why should Apple Expect you to resort to taking out yet another Contract for Voice and Data & have to obtain a Micro simcard to use with the New Breed of its Devices like the iphone 4 & ipad.

You most probably already are on a good deal already with your network provider and most users will  not be near the contract completion date either so will not be eligible for good priced upgrades to iphone 4 or ipads.

User on the Pay as u Go Mobile Virtual Network operators and want to keep you same sim and Voice/Data plans and your their network operators will still be in the early stages of rolling  supplies of  micro sims.

What’s the difference between a SIM and a micro-SIM?

Like a regular SIM, the micro-SIM holds your subscriber information for the carrier and is great for storing
iphone 4gphone book contacts and other personal information. Micro-SIMs are user-replaceable and slide into a little slot in your device just like regular SIMs.

The micro-SIM is a smaller version of a SIM card found in your mobile phone, but holds exactly the same functions and micro-applications. The size of the micro-SIM is about a half of a regular SIM card (12×15 mm instead of 15x25mm). Though it contains the same information, it is not physically compatible with regular SIM cards found in your mobile phone.

A micro-SIM is basically smaller than a normal SIM card like you have and will only work in an iPad or iphone 4 and a watch phone by Lok8u,.

You can see from the images below and see the sim is much smaller than normal but the inner workings of the sim chip are the same with only small modifications that will be further explained down below in the article.

Should i use Scissors or a Knife or Blade to Cut my Sim to Micro Sim Format to use in ipad or Apple 4 ?

Not so Fast as thier was some news in today from Apple that might put a damper on your plans to save yourself a Wad of Notes. It would be reckless to consider taking a pair of scissors to cut the plastic of a regular SIM cards to make a micro-SIM. Anyone who would attempt to do so would risk damaging both their SIM and also the SIM slot of the device but its possible with some Skill.

A better option would be to contact your carrier to get a micro-SIM card or if you do want to convert a normal sim to a micro sim use the Micro sim Cutter Option and if you need to convert your micro sim back to normal you can also use micro sim adapters..

Why Apple Moved to the New Micro Sim Format.

Apple have learnt from previous sim unlock hacks via Sim Overlay Technology from the likes of Rebel Simcard for unlocking, Call  Control Least Cost routing and the use of Double Sim Adapters and have gone to micro Sim format to do their best to block out the possibility of future hacks. Changing down to the micro format so that they can make it much harder to fit Gadgets inside the iphone 4 or ipad sim gates.

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim-small

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim-pic

Another reason Apple moved to the new format was a smart marketing technique. Their is nothing new about the micro sim other than the change of size and apple know this would be good talking point for others to create more talk and publicity around their products and people will percieve also the micro sim is special for apple products or even made by them.

The micro sim was first used by Lok8u, they were the first to ship a micro-SIM product in the United States — a watch that relays the location of children from their wrists to their parents’ cellphones.Jobs Got in Second on the Act here but will claim the Glory and portray this as Apples invention too.

Today’s News Puts a Damper on the Hopes of People wanting to use their existing network Simcard on the Apple Ipad

Apple has added a section to its iPhone FAQ confirming that you won’t be able to use one Micros SIM in both the smartphone and the Apple iPad.

Thousands off people who don’t want to Sign up to New 2 Year  Contracts from Carriers planned to buy an Ipad  Sim Free and use their Existing Simcards which have free or cheap internet packages by converting then by cutting them self or through the of micro sim cuttings tools have had their Plans blown out of the window for Now with the new announcement.

The official line on this from UK O2 is “The micro-SIMs for the iPhone are set up to allow voice calls, SMS messages and data functionality, whereas the iPad micro-SIM is provisioned to allow pay-as-you-go data transfer only.”

“The two devices are designed to give a different experience. The iPhone 4 is for regular use, whereas with the iPad we offer moreflexibility over data use.”

Makes perfect business sense from Apple’s point of view, but seems a riff off as the Device is Purchased Sim Free and such Restrictions should not be placed. This means we need to have two monthly data plans if we want 3G mobile browsing.

The two types of Micro Sim card for Apple ipad & Iphone 4 Explained and Can you use if you convert you existing sims to micro sim format.

Most networks around the world sell 2 types of network simcard.

  1. Voice & Data Enabled Simcard where you can Make Calls and also Use to Surf the Net. This is the most common type of simcard around the world and is same as what we find in mobile phones and phones like Iphone 3G 3G 3GS.
  2. Data Only Simcard Where you cant make Calls but Can use to surf the Net Only. This type of network simcard is quite new and only few years old & can only be used in devices who primary function is to supply Data only Services and you will already find these kinds of simcards in devices like data dongle & Mifi Devices and often are bundled in to deals with Laptops that are sold with internal wireless GPRS EDGE 3G Modems.

If you already have a Good mobile contract Deal with Free Data allowance this Leaves you with the Following options if you convert you network sim to micro format and buy a Sim Free iphone 4 or Ipad 3G.

How To Use The Dell Streak Postal Unlock Service

Good news, T-Mobile customers. The AT&T Dell Streak can now be unlocked in a matter of seconds with the Rebel Sim II. I had tried many, many times to unlock the Streak with this card in the past, but what made it work this time is the firmware.

Version 1.2 of the firmware was released two weeks ago, and I can confirm that it is able to unlock the AT&T-locked Streak for use with T-Mobile (voice and EDGE). The Rebel Sim II does not void your warranty because it doesn’t modify any software orpermanently unlock the device; once you remove the card, the Streak is back to its AT&T-only state. Put it back in with your T-Mobile SIM, and it’s unlocked for T-Mobile again. Take it out and your Streak is locked to AT&T.

Want to use your official AT&T Streak with T-Mobile (and other carriers)? Here’s how to do it.

1. Buy the Rebel Sim II for £10. You can buy it with the SIM cutter..

2. Punch a hole at the top of your T-Mobile SIM card. It doesn’t affect the card’s usability (you’re just punching through useless plastic) and the hole doesn’t have to be precise.

All you need to do is make sure the black square on the Rebel Sim II is exposed when the cards are stacked. That little chip is the source of the magic.

Here’s a more technical explanation:

“The Rebel Simcard has an IC on the FPCB and this intercepts some of the communication between the network simcard and phone and enables the use of other network simcard’s in a otherwise locked phone.”

3. Slide the stacked cards into the Streak’s standard SIM slot. They won’t stay together very well on their own, so you can use a small piece of tape on the edge if you can’t get them in correctly. There’s very little room for imperfection when inserting the cards (i.e., they really need to be lined up correctly for this to work), so be patient and keep trying.

4. Once the two cards are inserted, put the Streak’s battery back in, replace the back cover, and turn it on. If the cards are in correctly, you’ll see T-Mobile in the status bar as soon as the Streak boots up and prepares the SD card. If you don’t see it, take the cards out and try again.

And that’s it.

I’ve got Android 2.1 on my official AT&T Streak, and it works with no problems on T-Mobile.

After I removed the Rebel Sim II and T-Mobile SIM card, I put my AT&T card back in and it was like nothing had happened.

I’m back on AT&T and fully locked to the carrier until the next time my Rebel Sim II wants to take a ride in the Dell Streak.

If you already have a Rebel Sim II card with the old firmware, you can download the new firmware and load it onto the card with a compact programmer.
