You might be confused by this. You might have a lot of questions about this. You might wonder: Is this a good or bad thing? Was my iPhone hacked or jailbroken? All of these questions are good ones, and this article will try to answer them.

What Does No SIM Restrictions Mean on iPhone?

Apple sells both locked and unlocked iPhones and iPads directly and through third-party sellers. If your device’s Settings say “no restrictions,” it means that you can use any SIM card with your iPhone or iPad.

This means you can use your device with different carriers. When you switch carriers, you can just change the SIM card. This is something good. For instance, if you want to sell an iPhone or iPad that has been unlocked, it will be worth more. No one will want to buy a used device that has been locked.

If you buy an iPhone or iPad directly from Apple, it’s likely already unlocked. But if you buy an iPhone or iPad from a third party, like a cell phone company, the device may be locked.

This is especially true if you bought it in parts and are still paying for it. Your phone will probably stay locked to the carrier until the device is paid off in full. After you’ve paid it off, you can talk to your carrier about getting it unlocked.

Go to Settings > General > About to check your phone. Either “No SIM restrictions” or “SIM locked” will be written on it. If your device is locked, it can only be unlocked by the carrier. If your phone is paid off, your carrier will probably let you do what you want.

So, what happens if you want to use a different carrier network on a device that is SIM-locked? You can put in a new SIM, but the iPhone or iPad won’t work because it won’t be able to connect to a cellular network.

When you go to Settings > General > About > Network, your device will probably say something like “Phone not allowed,”.

If this happens, the only thing you can do is call your carrier. Before unlocking, they may ask for a fee or the amount still owed.
