    Hey all, I'm trying to JB a iPhone 4 - I know how to do all this with jailbreakme.com and all that stuff, but I've got a sim card question. The phone in question does not have a sim card, so I get an "insert valid sim card with no pin lock" message and the slide for emergency screen. I bought a SIM card off ebay so I can get into safari and thus use jailbreakme.com. Linked below is the SIM card I bought.

    So, it arrived and I inserted it. The "insert valid sim card" message goes away, but I still get the slide for emergency message. Furthermore, iTunes gives me the "SIM card inserted dose not seem to be supported". Did I buy the wrong SIM card? Where did I go wrong?

    I read the description. Perhaps you should have, as well, before you bought it.

    Ah, look at that... So, what do you recommend someone in my situation do about this? Trying to unlock the phone that is.
