Trying to get WiFi calling to work. So I entered a new ICCID, but it never tried to reactivate, rebooted too. Now to see if it’s really unlocked for good, take the T-Mobile SIM card out, shut it off, and turn it back on.
No idea how it would be unlocked officially. I never asked Straight Talk/TF to unlock it. Maybe iOS 12 unlocked it. And I didn’t even know.
WiFi calling is enabled now though.
You have to spend over $500 to get a phone as fast as the iPhone SE. Might as well buy an iPhone 7.
If it is still unlocked after shutting down with no SIM card, then the only way to find out for sure, is by resetting it, and see if it’s still unlocked.
Still unlocked, it’s a miracle, TF unlocked my $55 refurbished iPhone SE, I did pay for two months of service, you have to buy a month, and then I got mad removed Cricket SIM card, and bent the adapter when putting it back in, so paid for another month. I have two adapters, I bought two more so if one bends, I’d have one.
To lazy to reset my phone, to see if it does what my mom’s phone did, with iOS before 12, you have to reset the phone to get it unlocked.
How do I deactivate my phone? Then a new SIM card should popup the activation.
I backed it up, to lazy to reset it though. Don’t want to lose my no adapter unlock. No idea how it got unlocked. Before removing the adapter would require reactivating it. I put the SIM card in at my mom’s, and it didn’t reactivate, I was surprised I didn’t need to enter a new ICCID.
Only the single core score matters on a phone. Under 1,000 is slow, like the Moto X4. The iPhone SE gets 2533. The X4 is fast enough with a custom ROM. But Motorola massively screwed up on the X4.
The activation server is online, so that’s not the cause of the free unlock.
Apparently that adapter works with unlocked phones too, not sure why you’d want to do that though. I have a US Mobile Verizon SIM card, Verizon is what the Straight Talk SIM card uses. That might tell you if it’s really unlocked.
Just don’t update iOS and I should be good to go. Oh yeah, I forgot to measure my penis with the Measure app.
Well, now I really won’t buy an unlocked refurbished iPhone 7 from Apple. It’ll be funny, if I’m not home, and it isn’t unlocked anymore. That’ll be a short lived no adapter unlock.
