I have a iPhone 4 from att and my boyfriend gave me a sim from his account to use and he kept threatening to report my phone lost or stolen so it would be useless. Att told me he couldn't do that. Well I got a Straight Talk SIM card and after one call my phone no longer works he reported it lost or stolen. Really my question is can I still use the new SIM card after I get my phone unblocked??

I would ditch his SIM, then him, and put your phone on something else. Straight-Talk is an excellent choice, see related threads in Hot Deals and Deal Discussion how to set it up if you have questions. SIMs are $6.99.
I was still on his account so I called att and got my phone reported fond and removed from his account. But when I requested to have it unlocked I got email his account is not in good standing. I called Straight Talk today they said my sim is fine. And we are broke up : )
I just got my SIM card today & was thinking I could insert it into my out of contract, reset AT&T iphone 4...set stuff up on it, & then activate my service tomorrow. So I got to the point where I have already inserted the SIM card & unsuccessfully tried to link it to itunes & got a "the iphone software update could not be contacted". I started looking for a solution online & found this site. Did I really already ruin my SIM card or can it be saved at this point?
