Hello! I live in Russia and love Apple very much, have many different products and never had any problems with them. And now I decided to buy a new iphone 5 and wasn't lucky. I bought it on 3.05.2013 in normal shop, then turned out that wi-fi and bluetooth are not working and the phone eats battery very fast. Shop doesn't want take it back, official services don't want to repair it for free, because it was made for USA. I really don't know what to do:( To buy android? Hope you can help me somehow, the best solution for me is to change it. Serial № of the phone: F17KF2E5DTTR; Part №: MD296LL/a; imei: 013428008469809. Thanks!
My iphone 4 has just completed my two year contract with vodafone. However in this time my phone broke and I used apple to repair it. Which in fact is actually a switch service. So now I have a different imei number than what I started with. I rang vodafone to unlock my phone, but they say they can't and there is nothing they can do as the phone was not issued by them. I also can't seem to find a way to unlock my phone via apple. So what can I do??Any help would be awesome!
I contacted Orange UK and they said that this iPhone4 is ready to be unlocked, but they can't unlock the phone because I am not the original contract owner. Why can't Apple unlock this phone, because the original owner doesn't care and has sold it? As far as I understand, I am one of at least 3 owners for this phone. I guess there could be more. I just wanted to have a normal iphone, why can't Apple help on this issue? I have previously had many apple products, this is the first one I bought used adn just wanted to restore it to normal. Another thing is that 3rd party services can unlock it for 200$. What is that they do to unlock it? Why can't apple make a small comission for unlcoking iPhones instead. People find ways to cheat and ripoff people who doesn't deserve to pay extra for the phone they bought.

I bought the iphone 5 from Star One Mobile in Sim Lim Square Singpore recently. After reaching my place , just found that the serial number and imei number in my iphone 5 product and the packaging box are different. When I check on the website the packaging number shows the product is replaced but the number in product shows valid. Can some one explain the difference?I did not anticipate an Apple product having a difference in serial and imei number from the packaging --- probable that the Star one mobile could have changed the package?
as i connect my iphone with itunes, it is not showing imei NUMBER? also it is not showing wifi or sim service. can you help me to solve this problem?

Folks, I am getting confusing information from various sources.According to the service I am using for factory unlocking my iphone 5, as soon as I unlock my phone I will be able to use it on all GSM networks, except the original ATT. This is contrary to all the previous unlocks I have ever done on any phone. What is the reason why my phone will no longer work on ATT, if true? Can APPLE or ATT help me get it back on ATT network once I no longer need to use it overseas? Thank you for your help.

I purchased an iPhone4 32 GB from my friend and i want to know that either this iphone is Indian or not. Can any one tell me that is there any way to check this through imei number, Serial Number, iTunes or iCloud.
Hi All, So I have disbled my iphone 4s by forgetting my passcode (like it seems many other people do!). Also as the phone went dead as I was away for the weekend the SIM is also locked. I have often backed it up to iCloud but I never had the camera roll back up option ticked as I cannot see it when I sign into iCloud. I dont have iTunes on my laptop or access to the original iTunes where it was synced a year and a half ago. My question is can I get the phone unlocked by Apple? ( I have the imei number and proof of purchase) Is there any way of keeping or getting my photos/videos and messages? When I had my phone plugged into the laptop and was clicking backup through wifi will this have also backed up my photos? Thanks!

Hello everyone, I rencently purchased an iphone 5 from a person selling it on craigslist. the iphone is an At&t model and according to the person i bought it from the device is unlock. Is there anyway of telling if this is true without inserting a sim card for a different carrier? Are those websites where one enters the imei number a safe way to determine unlock status?

Hi all. I want to unlock my iphone 4 from Vodafone (I'm out of contract and the phone won't work with SIM cards from other carriers). It's a replacement/refurb as my original phone died. Vodafone say they don't have the imei on file to authorise the unlock and need to request it to be transferred from Apple (which takes 5 working days). Is this right? Is there any way Apple can speed up the process for me?

Hi All, My brother had gifted me an iphone 6 months back. He had bought this phone from Dubai. It was unlock phone when he bought it from shop.Recently there was some problem so i have asked my brother to show this phone in apple service center. They said there is some problem and they have replace it. My brother got a new replacement iphone 4s. However when he sent that phone to India and i tried activating it for 1st time, it's saying invalid sim data and itunes shows that this phone is unlock and can not be activated. imei no of my phone is 013180009926952, please can some one let me know what to do in this situation. Who will unlock it now. Thanks.
Not a good idea to publish private information here like imei and phone number. Contact the developer of the app if you have a problem with it

Hi, Yesterday I lost my iphone 5 which I bought 3 months back... I filled a police complaint, but i am not very hopeful with them. As Indian police will never make a move to find a cell phone. Anyways, Fortunately the "find my iphone" app was there in the phone and the location services were enabled with data. I tried to find it out from icloud.com portal but cell seems to be offline. And on calling the cell it is switched off. The only thing which I did not do in my iphone was to set a passcode. I am not sure how does the app behaves if some one restarts the phone. Is it possible for the thief to erase all data despite the app being active on the phone? Is it possible for the thief to use the phone by reseting it to factory setting without me getting location of the phone? I saw in one of the youtube tutorials that the phone will switch on and it ill try to find the data network, and if it finds data then it will send me intimation and blocks the cell. however, what is the scenario if the thief dont use the data and put on the phone? Or if he uses a SIM that does not have data connection? Can they reuse my phone. Can I do anything to prevent them using my iphone. I am trying to get my phone's imei number on tracking but dont know if it works before they reprogram my cell.( if at all they have so much brain). Please share your comments, views and suggestions and let me know the answers to the questions which I have asked. Thanks Abhishek Sinha
Dear, admin.Why i cant search my hardware serial number in my iphone? And when im tracking with serial number hardware, i hve the notifications with "ur imei number is incorrect or has been replaced please try again"Can you help me? Im so confused! Please help me!!

My iphone 4S dies at 83% battery without warning. It would previously die at 30%, 54%, and then eventually 70%. I did a hard reset and a soft reset to see if that would fix the problem. But that didn't work. I thought maybe this was because I don't use an Apple charger (I use a generic one) but I ruled that out when I used a friend's Apple charger. Is it possible that I need a new battery replacement or is it the iOS 6.1.2 update that is draining my battery?
iphone 4sI imei number would not show and when i dial *#60# it does not show either. Please what might be the problem?
We're sorry, but this is a serial number for a product that has been replaced. Please check your information and re-enter your serial number. If your information is correct, you may need to contact us. i'am getting the following error after entering the imei number of my new iphone 5. What cold be the possible reason and how should I get rid of it ? Also the imei number engraved on the back side of my phone is different than its showing inside the software. Thanksbharat
Hello everyone, I've got an iphone 4 from a friend. The phone does not show the imei nor any modem/baseband firmware version.He plugged it off during the update process.I wanted to restore it with iTunes, but this does not help. Is there any possibility to recover it or install a complete new iOS 6.1.2 on it and have 3G and WiFi running? iTunes says, the phone is broken. There was no jailbreak installed. Thanks in advance. Kind regards,Kev
If this is a Sprint-model iphone, only Sprint can unlock the GSM portion of the iphone for use with other carriers. You/he will have to contact Sprint. Or whoever purchased the iphone can return it, if possible, and buy an unlocked iphone. Regards.
