    I bought a used iPhone 5 that was locked to Bell network (Canada). For some reason, only Bell iPhones can't be unlocked through those IMEI services. Bell does unlock it for $75, but you have to have been a customer (which I am not), and completed your contract or something. The only solution I've found are r-sim cards that you can buy for ~$30. Has anybody here actually tried them out??

    The Verizon iPhone5 is GSM unlocked - and can be used with European carriers... you should at least get their HSPA+ speeds where available.

    I'm using an r-sim card unlock for my iPhone 5 which is locked to Vodafone UK. For me, r-sim is working flawless, without any signal drop issue or any other problem. It's a plug n play SIM card and works really well on my iPhone. I don't feel the need to get it IMEI unlocked.

    Hi,

    I have an iPhone 5 locked to Bell Canada as well. I am using R-Sim8 and it working perfectly fine on Vodafone India, including the data. I am on iOS 7 Beta 5.
    I suggest going for rsim8 as it is a cheaper option.

    Fine below the snapshot of the same.

    Cheers

    And What type R- sim do you use? I have IPhone 5 blocked for Vodafone is well. I used R-sim 9 but doesnt work.
