How to fix my iphone.. I got an iphone from a friend with an optus sim card and I put a boost sim card in it then restored it via itunes to fix the camera now it says it needs the carrier sim?
Any time you restore an iPhone you will lose your jailbreak and your unlock and you will have to start from scratch and do it all over again. You also cannot use a Boost SIM card in an iPhone as Boost is owned by Sprint/Nextel and their SIM cards use iDEN technology, not GSM. The Boost SIM cards can be used for International Roaming only and will not work on GSM networks in the US.

if its an iphone 1,2,3 then its at the top you have to get a paperclip or something small to open it.(dont use anything tht will damage your phone) if its an iphone 4,4s,5 it …on the right side.
No it will not work. Boost uses an iDEN network which is not compatible with GSM in the least, whether the device is unlocked or not.
there is a small slot on the side of the iphone, open it and slide card in as you would in a camera for example, kind of like what you have to do on regular cellphones.....a l…ittle rubber flap which you have to open.
Yes, it works the same as any other phone from AT&T....
Look at the top edge of the iphone 3g. there is a long button, and a headphone hole. See the tiny hole between the two? stick a small object, such as the little pick that co…mes with it, in the hole, and the sim card holder will pop out.
on the top of the phone next to the plug for the earphones, there is a small pin hole u need to insert the pin that came with the phone and it will pop out the sim case
At the top of the iphone there is a little hole but only a tiny one.What you do is get a paper clip and stick it in the hole at the top. A little tray will pop out with a sim …(unless its bran new)on it.
Only if the iPhone is unlocked or it is a prepaid sim supported by your carrier. But you may not get the data access. It's best to check with your carrier.
As long as it is AT&T, yes.
Short answer: No. Detailed Answer: You would first need to have a SIM card that is with AT&T. If it is with another carrier (such as T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, etc.), then y…ou won't even be able to start the iPhone. If you already have AT&T, the iPhone can be used with extremely limited access. Actually, your iPhone won't be able to do much of anything. Even after putting in a SIM card, the iPhone will be limited to phone calls, text messages, and iPod features. Anything that requires an internet connection (which applies to just about everything else) will not work. If you try to go to a website, connect to YouTube, or even send a picture message, the iPhone will prompt you to contact your mobile provider. This is because the iPhone requires a very specific data plan that is only available through AT&T (so specific, in fact, that it is called the "iPhone plan"). After placing your SIM card in the iPhone, you would call AT&T, have them access your account, and tell them you are now using an iPhone. After the changes have been made, a restart of the iPhone is usually required. Once it reboots, all of the features will be available.
Yes, Yes you can.
yes but you wont have service just only wifi and if you want you can have any Sim card for any company that offers a Sim card

Take the sim card out and clean the contacts.

usally it means that the sim card is dirty. Here is a few steps to do that MIGHT get it working: 1. Turn phone off. 2. Pop out the sim card 3. Leave sit for about either 10 s…econds or minutes then put sim back in and turn on. If that doesn't help I don't know what will
In iPhone 5
On the right side of your iPhone you will see an area with a blackhole. Put sometime small into the whole like a paperclip. It willpop open. Now insert your SIM card.

If your iPhone is unlocked, then yes, all carriers will work. But if it is locked to a certain carrier, then you will have to unlock it using a jailbreak.
