i bought this iPhone 4 locally and was supposed to be "unlocked" i got it for a good enough price that if i can find the carrier i may be able to re-sell it for more,

how would i go about doing that? in Settings>General>About for carrier info it says Noat available,

its model # MC605C
Serial # 84042HDPA4T

in canada we have either Rogers, Fido, Telus, Bell or Virgin to choose from. i tried Rogers, so it could be any of the other 4,

thanks for any help,

Telus Mobility. Most likely it is unlocked if you're not seeing a carrier listed.

You may have got lucky when you tried it with the Rogers SIM. Try another SIM and then you will know for sure :)

What firmware is the phone on?

i tried, solo, fido and rogers, all gave me one bar with no carrier name,

i have a bell sim i could try, and my friend is on telus i could try, but it would be wayy easier to know my the #'s on it :p

Sounds more like dead SIM cards to me. If my memory isn't failing me, if you put in an unsupported SIM card, the phone would alert you of such, instead of doing what you described.

Have you tried calling Apple, giving them the IMEI and asking which carrier it is locked to? I've bought a bunch of second hand phones and often did this in order to quickly narrow down the right sim card to use to activate it.
