Unlocked att iphone 6

I unlocked my att iphone through the unlock feature on their site using imme. Then I activated on boost site. When I insert boost sim it shows full bars LTE. Then it proceeds to say activation required, so I follow the on screen prompts. This is immediately followed by the device saying invalid sim. If the sim is invalid, then how come it shows it's receiving cell service? I bought the bring your own phone sim kit. This is really frustrating and I have scoured the internet looking for a solution... But it seems there isn't one. It shows my byop iPhone on my boost account page. However, I can't use my cell phone and this is super frustrating. Any help would be appreciated. My device id is listed as a compatible device. Help please!

Hi, Br4nd0n1234. Did you purchase the SIM card kit?

Yes, I did. I identified the aim out of the three that was compatible with the iPhone and upon inserting, without entering password it shows full bars LTE. Once I enter my SIM it says, "activation required." I tried reformatting multiple times. I also tried using Wi-Fi, iTunes and cellular data to activate, but once I proceed and it implies it will take a while... invalid aim is then shown on the screen.

Re: Unlocked att iphone 6

The problem I seem to be running into is that once sim card is inserted I can no longer get to the phone feature, this is due to it requiring activation. This as previously stated fails with the error invalid sim. I tried removing sim so that I may get to the phone feature, but the call fails when I type in your code. I believe this is due to the sim being removed which causes no mobile data. If I reinsert the sim... I see the full LTE bars on the top until I enter password and I'm forced to try and activate which fails. This replaces the LTE bars with a no service message. Could I possibly be doing something wrong? Why would it show the sim picking up the cell towers, but won't activate? I appreciate your expedited responses and patience.

The SIM card gives you the LTE access. Please send us a private message with the account phone number, pin code, the IMEI, and the SIM card number.

I was looking for the private message button... However, I only saw reply and comment when trying to send you the info. I noticed you told another user not to post information publicly and I just wanted to clarify how to send it directly to you first. Sorry again about the multitude of questions.
