Unlocking a locked phone with new SIM?
My mom gave me her old iPhone 6s, but it is locked. I was able to at least reset the whole thing, but once I try to set everything up, I can’t. Because this phone doesn’t have its original SIM card and I read a BUNCH of articles for help and they say it’s possible as long as I contact the carrier it was with. So, I was wondering if it was possible to use a new SIM card under the same carrier to access the phone. I really just need to activate and unlock it, I don’t want the service or data. This phone just needs to be used like an iPod, but I can’t do that unless I have some SIM card activation happen. Please help.
