The SIM card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported

What’s the error message mean?

It means that you are not inserting the correct SIM card into the iPhone, which is not supported by your iPhone. The iPhone you have is locked to its original carrier, which means that you can not use it with a different carrier.

So, if you have AT&T iPhone, you cannot put T-Mobile SIM card in it, otherwise it will say: the sim card inserted in this iphone is not supported.
If you have Vodafone iPhone, you cannot put T-Mobile SIM card in it, otherwise it will say: the sim card inserted in this iphone is not supported.
if you have O2 iPhone, you cannot put Vodafone SIM card in it, otherwise it will say: the sim card inserted in this iphone is not supported.
if you have Rogers/Fido iPhone, you cannot put Bell SIM card in it, otherwise it will say: the sim card inserted in this iphone is not supported, and on and on.

What to do to fix “The SIM card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported” ?

Here are some tips to fix your iPhone if you see this error message comes up:

  1. First, you must be using the original SIM card from carrier which the iPhone is locked to.
  2. Second, if you are not using the carrier or it’s not available in your country, you will need to unlock the iPhone first. There are several ways to unlock your iPhone. By using IMEI, Chip / SIM Interposer, or unlock using jailbreak (for 3GS and older devices only).
  3. Third, don’t use put any SIM card. This only applies for iPhone which cannot be unlocked in any way. It means you cannot use it as a mobile phone, but only an iPod Touch (to play music, youtube videos, browsing thru safari, etc).

The message may appear differently if you use different language settings on your iTunes:
