Q: Iphone SIM card question?

I saw an unanswered question, tapped in a reply, and it vanished. Both question and answer.

Maybe I am having a brain burst.

Anyway, the question I answered was about iphone 6 compatability with different suppliers SIM cards.

Apologies to the OP for vanishing your question.

I blame MS Edge.

If it’s an iPhone 6 bought in China then it should work on any carrier here. Unless bought specifically from a China Mobile store. 

 

Though to make sure check here:

Alternatively you could quickly search and go direct to the manufacture to check:

The answer I tried to post.

I recall people having to change from China Mobile to China Unicom when the IPhone 6 first came out. Something to do with the 4g being different between the service suppliers.

So an original IPhone 6 might need a china Unicom sim card.

I dont think your phone is locked, its just looking for a differnt 4g protocol.

hey thanks scotsalan for answering me. i figured i was being lazy and did not do enough research so i deleted the question. i should have gone to the shop first before asking, which i'm going to do now

is there anything i can do to make it work? i've got a feeling it'll be forever useless.

 

i ve got a 6s which i bought two years ago. regretfully i bought the 16g which is completely useless. i saw a used iphone6 128g for sale so i bought it. if anybody is looking for an older iphone do not get the iphone 6s

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
