Nope. Your phone isn't unlocked, and thereforee, the only SIM card that'll work is an AT&T SIM card.

Wow, your iPhone will have left the US. That's not allowed is it? Isn't it US law, no American can leave these United States ;)

Mind you, I guess the iPhone is more Chinese than American right? So that law shouldn't apply.

Seriously, nope, no international SIM will work. Unless you get one of those dodgy hack ones.

Jailbreak your phone.

Unlock it

put a foreign sim card in it e.g o2 (england/ireland) vodafone(works across europe if you get vodafone postcard)

also- watch your internet usage cos it'll be exspensive

OR

just take your normal simcard and leave it in and turn your roaming on

Why don't you just go back and edit your post and then delete it from there?

this is the main reason fir either buying a factory unlocked iPhone or waiting for the dev team to crack the lock.
