Will an imei iphone 4 turn on if it is att imei blocked bout it on ebay 4 a ton will it work with a straight talk sim? Need helpo

An IMEI iPhone 4 will turn on if it is AT & T IMEI blocked. They provide unlock services for all iPhones. Straight Talk SIM will also work. You simply need to request for their service online from http://www.straighttalksim.com/.

As far as I know only esn's on cdma phones are blocked not imei's on gsm's. Anyway taking it to straight talk with their sim shouldn't be a problem. I'm about to try it as well. Let me know if you get it to work.

So it will let me use it on straight talk if i out my straigth talk dim in it, if its blocked on att and cant be used oon att network?

It depends on whether or not your iphone is one of the dual network world phones. They have both a cdma esn and a gsm sim card slot. Typically only the cdma network esn is blocked at ATT. The gsm side of the phone should work just fine with a micro mini sim card from straight talk.

thats what i got 4 my iphone 3, micro mini sim so if i put it in the iphone 4 when it ships in will it work?

I think so, you should just have to change the ASN programming. Straight talk's website has that information.

im not 2 smart about phones what is the asn programming?
Report as
It is just the data network address programming needed to access straight talk's servers for internet and mms. It is not hard to modify. Instructions are on their website.

I'm still looking for the worldphone version to try it on. I did switch a Galaxy S2 over though with no problems.

So does iphone 4 have 2 sim slots or just 1?
Report as
if i just put in the sim card what would i have 2 do next or would that be it

Add the straight talk ASN programming.
To modify the APN settings there are two steps:

1) Settings > Carrier > Automatic (turn off)
wait for list of carriers to appear then select appropriate carrier from list shown

2) Settings > General > Cellular (scroll down to bottom) > Cellular Data Network > now modify settings
Get the straight talk ASN info directly from their website.

Do i do this on there website?

i went on straight tlalk and looked at those steps would i have to do all of that again since my sim was already in my iphone 3
Report as
I miss typed, its not asn but APN and you have to do it on the phone itself. The info is not stored on the sim card.
Report as
iPhone: Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network is the path to view and modify your APN settings. If your phone does give you these options then it is likely going to have to be unlocked first by the original carrier company.

And i read a bunch of stuff in macrumro it sd my iphone wont work becasue straght talk uses att tours is tht righ?
Report as
on eby it sd it is blocked by att network
Report as
If it is a dual networked phone(worldphone) with bot gsm and cdma, then the only side att is blocking is the cdma. Since Straight Talk doesn't use the cdma network(only the gsm) then you should be okay with running it on Straight Talk's network with their own sim card.

Would a dual network phone be an iphone 4
