SIM Not Valid, how to unlock by using carrier?

Views: 852 Replies: 3
I got an iPhone while I was in Canada with Fido and I’ve used it for 2 years (my contract with them is over) but now I’ve travelled to Costa Rica and my travel pack with Fido is over as well and I now need to use a new Costa Rican SIM Card but this is the message I got when I tried to install the new SIM Card:

"SIM Not Valid

The SIM card that you currently have installed in this iPhone is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. Please insert another SIM card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked by your carrier. Please contact Apple for more information."

What do I do? I assumed this was a good place to start asking questions about this.

You contact Fido and find out if they offer unlocking and if that phone is eligible for it.

Only the carrier it's locked to can authorize unlocking it.
