    I have an iPhone 4 that I have put together(using 2 iPhones, both with different problems), anyway, what I have now is a locked iPhone(bell) and when I insert my sim(Petro-Canada) it just says "No Service" at the top.


    My concern here is that the phone's antenna is not working at all, but I may be wrong because I am not sure if it should still say the carrier at the top left when it is not unlocked and has a different sim in it.


    So my question is: Will your iPhone still show the Carrier's name of the inserted sim while the phone is unactivated and the sim is not a bell one?

    The sim does work. I use it in my iPad

    It will not show the carrier unless it matches the carrier it's locked to :)

    Ah, phew. Thanks, I was worried I had broke something while I was transferring motherboards :p

    It should say "No Service" thought right? Not anything else?
