Unlock sim card error from Iphone 7

Old phone was Sprint. Took the Sprint card out and put into an unlocked Verizon Iphone 7 rebooted the new phone with the sprint Sim card in it. Message appears on phone after reboot as the Sim card has locked please power cycle the device and if the problem persists contact customer service. Is going to sprint to undo our only option?

Hydro Icon C6730 with Boost Mobile. How can I unlock?


Try a sim card from a carrier that is not for the phone. If your carrier is boost mobile then use a Verizon or sprint sim card, even a new sim card will not work if it is the carrier locked to the phone. It must be a non carrier sim card.

Can i unlock a sprint phone


    1. Unlike Sprint, the SIM slot on Verizon iPhones comes unlocked. Caveats: While you can use SIM-equipped Verizon phones on AT&T, T-Mobile and other GSM carriers, unless the device has roaming GSM radios it won't be able to make phone calls or send texts in the United States.Jul 28, 2014

I have a sprint phone "Samsung Moment" sph-m900 and i want to switch it to verizon.


Depending upon whether your phone has been locked or if it's unlocked you can switch SIM cards around with no problem.

A phone being locked is when the service provider has blocked the phone from being used by any other service provider's SIM cards. Usually you will be asked for a PIN in order to allow the new SIM to be used. If you do have a locked phone then you can do a search online for unlocking your phone. The link below is for use in the UK, so you will have to go to google.com and use the search string "unlock..."

I believe that Verizon and Sprint phones are ussualy locked down, i would check the status of your SIM card, you should be able to use your hardware however you need the service and in this case a verizon SIM card.
a possible solution would be to buy a cheap verizon pay-as-you-go phone and remove the SIM card and put in your phone, you may have to unlock your phone to accept it.

Good Luck!

"Error 0" Samsung Blackjack. SIM card is missing or is not valid.


If he used it for the same carrier you are on (ie: sprint, AT&T, verizon, etc..) then it may just be a different format SIM card. Over my past 3 phones, I have had to change sim cards twice. Good thing is, usually the carrier doesn't charge for this. For example, if I took the sim out of my current LG g6, and tried to put it in my old galaxy note 3, it wouldn't work, I would have to get one of the older style SIM cards.
On the other hand, sometimes you won't be able to take a phone from one carrier to another, even if it is unlocked. It all depends on the cellular technology that the phone supports.
Hope this helps.
