    Dear friends

    Today I receive a caal from Apple Support telling me to restore my iPhone 5 like a new one and now I can send SMS normally.

    Hi Roman, is it mean we can use sprint to activate iPhone, then replace our local carrier sim, SMS can work?


    Hi everyone, does anybody use this way and successfully solve the problem?

    hi LL_Ditto


    the above procedure is a standar procedure that the apple executives will ask you to do as test.


    they asked me to do that as well, however it didnt work for me!


    also please note that not everyone brought the phone directly from apple, so most people dont event have their sprint micro sim card, so please dont sweat if it doenst work.


    inspite having a sprint sim the above procedure didnt work for me, and also as per that post if you dont have a sprint sim you have to wait till you get back to the US.


    that is not true as well,coz a lot of people on this forum had this problem resolved without even having a sim, it was all done by apple.


    wait for apple to contact you. you may take a chance by erasing your data (after taking a back up ofcourse) and doing a restore, who knows it may work


    even if it doenst, if you wrote to thr right people then apple will contact you!

    Thx Avi

    This is the 5th days since my first time send Apple email following all of your instructions, but still no one contact me....

    Maybe still can wait, the only way I can do.

    if you followed the right protocol and wrote to the "right" people, you will definitley be contacted!

    I tried the "solotion" from apple, but it dosen't seem to work.

    Anyone tried to delete the "Subject line"?  I had a problem in that I could receive messages, but could not send them. An Apple guy said he had the same problem and deleting the subject line corrected it.  I did the same thing and I have had a bit of trouble since.  I think the delete function is under Preferences/Messages.
