Hello @Mat,

Can you send a screenshot of the message you're getting?
It sounds like the phone may be locked to a different network provider.

Have you tried contacting the previous network provider this iPhone 5 was used in?

Thanks. I will contact them 👍🏻

I’m having the same issue. Replaced my sim onto a new iPhone 6s, but my old phone is locked with this sim. Is there any way that I can unlock my old sim to any other network provider. 
Would be great if you get back to me ASAP!
