Have you tried an AT&T or T-Mobile SIM for comparison?
You have to run the setup again.

Did you port your number over to ST? Maybe a problem with the port.
What carrier is he on? Can other people using that carrier text you as well?

Hi guys, we all know ST is $45 ($50 with tax) for unlimited talk, text and data with a soft 2G cap.
Lots of people on other forums are talking about using AT&Ts $50 plan on a Factory Unlocked iPhone. Does anyone know anything about that plan..maybe they dont have the Soft Data Cap like ST does.
Wow, this thread is still going huh? I have created a monster LOL!!!
A friend of mine just bought me a iPhone 4S as a gift (for no reason, just a gift) And I was able to e-mail the .config file from post 1 to myself and data started working. Im sure you guys already knew that, but I figured I would put it out there. 4S confirmed to work.

@MrRomeo: Did your friend get it as a device only purchase? Not at a subsidized purchase from any of the retailers??
The reason I ask is because I bought a at&t i4s from eBay. It came sealed and NIB (yay!). However I have issues activating the phone because the sellers number comes up at the activation screen and it requests i input his zip code and SS# (last 4 digits) for verification purposes.
I've tried connecting to iTunes, popping in my ST sim, DFU restore mode but I cannot seem to disassociate the i4s with the seller. It seems to be "locked" and "married" like some of ST's phones!! Any help or suggestions?! Feel free to message me :-)
I'm coming from an iPhone4 on ST and have jailbreaking and unlocking experience since 2007 (the first iPhone!)
Anyone is welcome to help!
PS - you certainly have created a monster! LoL.
Im not sure where he got it from, but these (the one he got for me and the one he got for himself) were already activated and at the home screen when I got it. Both were brand new in the box, but the box was opened and the sims removed. I didnt ask, I was just happy to get a gift like this out of the blue! My guess is, some guy bought it on his account using up his upgrade and sold it for 3 times as much. My friend has money to burn so I dont doubt he paid $600 for each phone.
The problem you are having seems very weird, and the only thing I can think of is that he ordered it online, so they put in a verification lock in case it gets lost or stolen in the mail. Contact the buyer and ask him to help. Otherwise, I would take the whole phone with the box to Apple and have them take care of it. Just be honest and tell them you bought it on ebay.
