    Hi @all,

    I`m using the iphone (hacked/unlocked US-version) with a german SIM in Germany. It works fine and I love this device.
    I`ve detected one problem during daily business.
    SMS with a text-originator (e.g. using for monitoring-notifications) are blocked by the iphone. It means that I could received a message from "+00000" or any other numbers but not from for example with originator "Thorsten". Is that only a problem with an unlocked iphone and it works with an original AT&T-sim?

    Thanks for your answers/support.

    Same issue here with unlocked iPhone in UK with both vodafone and t-mobile. This can be a problem for a lot of automated systems.

    i have 1 weird think - a normal sms pops up as a blue window...
    but special alert sms's go fullscreen with a black background, txt in white and the dismis button at the botom.
