i bought an iPhone 5 locked to EE uk network.
Seller sent me it already activated so i was able to check "EE 18.0" as carrier info, but i restored it with iTunes because i need Italian interface so now it must be activated.
I was thinking of using R-SIM 10 or similar to unlock my device for Italian Sim and i read instructions on rsim5 site ( in very bad english) but i have some doubts that i hope some of you can clear to me.
First of all : is the RSIM-10 able to activate my iPhone ?? ..or i have to activate (with any EE Sim) before to be able to unlock baseband with RSIM ??
On eBay most of RSIM sellers write "Your phone should be ACTIVATED prior to attempt unlock" but on manufacturer site they speak about "unlocking and activation".
Moreover the official video shows unlocking steps on already activated devices, but reading some answers to video comments it seems to be possible also to activate.
(p.s. as far as i know jailbreak of 8.1.2 is possible only on an already activated device so it is not possible to hack-tivate by jailbreaking like it was with Redsn0w etc.)
I'm a bit confused about this point.
Second thing : i use an "old" Sim, i think it should be 64K or 128k at most,
what i have to do to enable 3G connection with RSIM ?
Should i install a patch ?
Thank you for reading and please reply if you can give valid informations.
