I have my first experience with an iPhone, so really need some guidance and advice. I have got a second hand iPhone 4S - OS 5.1.1. I was told that it is SIM locked to a certain network.
When I switched it on it had Apple's Terms & Conditions on the screen which I had to accept or decline to proceed. After restart it asks me to insert a "valid sim card".
- I am wondering if this is standard to get T&C on the screen after restore or this phone never been activated?
- If this iPhone has never been activated - can it be activated with a different carrier's SIM card to what it was supposed to be locked to?
- If I try to activate it with a SIM card from a different carrier - what is the chance that it stops working and becomes a "brick"?
