    Hi everyone,

    My friend upgraded to a 6+ and gave me his 4s (Verizon). He called Verizon to get it unlocked and they did it for him. When we restore the phone on iTunes it gives us that awesome screen that congratulates us that the phone is unlocked. However when I insert my T-Mobile or AT&T (Both sims are activated) we get a message saying the sim card(s) are in-valid... Has anyone experience this before?

    With the 4S Verizon only unlocked it for international use so there is no way that you will get it working on T-Mobile or AT&T. If you want to use a Verizon phone on another US network you will have to get a 5 or newer as their LTE phones are all unlocked.
