    Hello there, Im new, firt post.
    I got an Iphone5 from a friend, carrier is AT&T and he is paying the fee to get away from contract. I bought the phone from him. I bought an unlock procedure from BreakThelock.com I'm still waiting for their response, but then I plugged the phone in Itunes (latest version) and restored the phone. Now the phone says
    SIM NOT VALID > only supported sim cards from supported carriers may be used to activate. please insert the sim card that came with iphone. please visit store.
    Does anyone know how could I fix this problem? and has anyone heard of Breakthelock.com? are they legit? thank you

    Has it gone past the 24 hour period? You need an official sim card to activate (i.e. AT&T) if it hasn't been unlocked yet.

    AT&T would unlock the iPhone for free since he would be canceling the contract and paying the ETF.

    Nevermind, Got it! the service is legit, I just plugged it in on itunes and whithing a second, Iphone was factory unlocked. logged in on Simple mobile, and transfered sim card. Everything works. Now I just need to know how to transfer my Contacts and pictures and such.
