Hi,

 

I just bought a second hand iphone 4 and reset the settings but when i try to activate it through itunes it says iphone cannot be activated at this time, if problem persists please contact customer care. How do i solve this and would it be because ther is no sim card?


iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    Your phone is likely carrier locked to a different carrier than you're tying to use.  The only solution is to contact the carrier it's locked to (get that from the seller) and find out if they will unlock it.  However, those carriers which do provide unlocking usually restrict that to current and former customers in good standing.
