With this action, you can identify the time zone of the device, find iPhone carrier, imei number, baseband, the phone number associated, software version and much more. This feature can also be used even if the device is in DFU mode.

However, the DFU mode will reduce the amount on information output compared to the normal mode. This new feature is perfect for those who want to information that resides deep inside the iOS device. In short, this feature is more likely to be used by tech enthusiasts. After this you can use carrier unlocking to factory unlock your iPhone 4, 4S or iPhone 5.

    Dear people, I bought my iphone 4s today. It was written that the phone is unlocked. I am in vodafone carrier in Ireland.
    I cannot activate the phone. It says that sim card is not compatible and to insert the supported sim card.
    I found all info using this website. And my phone shows me the carrier is vodafone IE 13 in settings->general->about.
    And the redsn0w shows me
    CarrierBundleInfo: BuildMachineOSBuild = 11D51
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleDevelopmentRegion = English
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleExecutable = Vodafone_ie
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleIdentifier = com.apple.Vodafone_ie
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion = 6.0
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleName = Vodafone_ie
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundlePackageType = BNDL
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleShortVersionString = 13.0.0
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleSignature = ????
    CarrierBundleInfo: CFBundleVersion = 13.0
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTPlatformName = iphoneos
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTPlatformVersion = 6.0
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTSDKBuild = 10A383
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTSDKName = iphoneos6.0.internal
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTXcode = 0450
    CarrierBundleInfo: DTXcodeBuild = 4G142
    CarrierBundleInfo: MinimumOSVersion = 6.0

    I just cannot understand what is wrong here.

    Have you any ideas?
    I even do not know is the phone jailbroken or it was factory unlocket? Or ir is it locked to other network? But the phone shows it’s with vodafone, my sim card is vodafone as well. So what’s wrong???

    Please, help me.

    You can’t Unlock your Phone without … AT&t ,Sprint phone carrier / better Go to any Phone shop or Apple shop they can Activate your Phone /

  • screwed again

    Same here, downloaded latest redsn0w and nothing on carrier info, just plain skipped it…. wtf

  • Midnight

    That is just showing the actual sim card in the phone.. or the last one used that was successful in connecting to a network.

  • mobro

    So where does it tell the number, as in to ring the sim.
