Hi, can the R Sim 7 hacktivate and can it allows us to use another carrier from the original one with an iphone 5? Does someone tried it? Does it work well as the gevey Sim? Thank you for your answers.

I plan on buying a CDMA iPhone 5 (either Sprint or Verizon) with a bad ESN. If the phone isn't activated, then can r-sim 7+ bypass the activation step for me, or do I have to use hacktivation for that? (Even if it didn't have a bad ESN, I wouldn't have the original SIM anyways).

Also, any other users out there who have tested r-sim 7+ on iOS 6.1.2? Is it working properly?

We are not Rsim support, Rsim is technically piracy of Gevey

I have the same exact phone with iOS 6.1 do you have a problem when you reboot ? Do you have to redo the whole set up again? That's what's happening to me. How did you install your rsim7
