Unlocked iPhones in the Philippines

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Some Apple iPhone users in the Philippines can now access a local mobile network (Globe, Smart, Sun) without using a roaming arrangement with AT&T.

The Apple iPhone, which combines a mobile phone with the company’s iconic iPod music player, has not yet been released in Southeast Asia.

  32. nicole says:

    yung akin pala is sharp docomo SH-03A.pls help. thanks is advance

  33. nicole says:

    pls help nmn. thanks.

  34. nicole says:

    Hi. inuwi ko phone ko from japan.

    saan po ba pwede magpa open line? sharp po ito.

    and kailangan ba ng ibang sim?

  35. butch says:


    it simply means they cannot openline the unit.

    1. this is japanese technology that we cannot deny.

    2. That is how intelligent japanese are when it comes to their design.

    3. for now theres no softwares that can openline sharp vodafone and softbank. Well maybe on the previous releases.

    4. 905sh ang ganda nian kc you can rotate the screen in a horizontal position.

    5. Ipa try mo yong turbo sim if hindi mo pa na try.. kc when i go there in greenhills they dont recomment naman eh.. unless you ask, kc i browse that and search in the net.

    6. Try to search your 905sh in youtube. but for sure 904sh makikita no don and on how rebelsim works on it. here in the philippines turbo sim tawag nila that works on my unit.

    God bless… just let me know update regarding that matter ..

  36. butch says:

    kim, there will be no signal talaga if the network here is not identified or accepted by the unit or your phone.

    Here are my few questions:
    1. have to tried the turbo sim which i told you? that is only 500 pesos the most.

    2. if you tried it, hows your phone response to it?

    3. Check on your phone network selection if theres GSM. If none, theres no way you can use the phone here in the philippines which i have the same with my sharp softbank 910sh.

    4. how they can say it can be openline? but no signal? thats lies.. if the system of the unit will not and cannot adopt our local sim and even the turbo sim that i mentioned, theres no way you can use that here. If they can openline that unit definitely it will have a signal. Tama o mali?

  37. kim says:

    thanks for the advise, butch…
    my brother has gone to greenhills to have it openlined, but they said they can’t.
    i’ve spoken to a technician and said it can be openlined, but no signal here in the phils., too bad.. i really like this phone.

  38. butch says:

    kim, my advise for your 905sh is that, try rebelsim or turbo sim where you can get in greenhills, that is a very thin plastic sim like to be attach in our local sim and inserted in the cellphone sim chamber. if that will work you need not to openline or ruin the originality of your unit. Coz i have sharp vodafone 904sh and it works very well..

    Sometimes it depends on the unit. i have sharp softbank 910sh it does not work because the unit itself has no option for network like, it suppose to have a GSM network that you have to select, which my softbank dont have.

    Check that also in your unit..

  39. kim says:

    pls po paki text naman po kami kung alam nyo shop pwede magpa-openline ng vodafone 905sh.

    thank u — 09062080216
