    It said invalid sim connect to iTunes. It recognizes that there is a sim and that its tmobile it just doesn't allow me to use the phone. When I go to contacts it shows the new sim card number and when I go to phone in settings it show the tmobile number it even show a option to choose carriers in settings but it doesn't allow me to choose carrier I will post screen shots as soon as I can.

    anyone have any photos of these NextSIMS or links to them? Alot of sellers on ebay are describing their products as NextSIM, Hyper Card, TurboSIM etc all for the same product... So I am sort of really curious what these NextSIM Cards are all about.

    Eh i don't know what to do know wait for a software unlock thats not gonna come out in ages or get this which isn't 100% gonna work. HONESTLY if the DEV team failed why don't they say so instead of pretending they are doing something....

    But i didn't say they HAVE failed.

    I followed every last instruction did everything as instructed and no luck but i have a 1 gen software iphone does that make all the difference?


    these are the photos of what the card looks like and what happens when i go into settings.... I have a option to choose carriers but cant actually choose, it shows that it recognizes the number as shown but will not work, and the carrier option pops up when the card is installed with the next sim

    yowiphone: too many choices to make up ones mind eh? lol



    A_SWELLGUY: Have you tried different simcards? Some older sims have issues now and again. Do you have any photos of your sim that you cut? cover up serials if you must but, that may be helpful.

    Also what does your reseller say when you contact them?

    i had the exact same problem, according to your pictures. i solved it by literally restoring and rejailbreaking the phone about...4 or 5 times, the last time with the tmobile sim and stealthsim inside the phone while i'm rejailbreaking and it just worked. i don't know how or why it was different the last time but it just worked. my "stealthsim" looks like yours, called an iturbosim.

    i know it's a pain having to go through the process that many times, but perhaps it'll help?

    Maybe defected? I heard NextSIM has two version. NextSIM II, only supports US phones while NextSIM III supports all models. However, much more expensive.

    Try www.everysim.com... It supports all US / Europe phones and it works well. And it's cheaper!!
