You Can always connect it to itunes as long as the sim is on the iphone to bypass activation

A friend just bought a used iphone 6 (it had the screen replaced by "someone") anyhow... it will NOT read the SIM and cannot be activated. Is it possible to bypass the activation in itunes and set it up (like an ipad) .... that way we could "finally" reset the time and date (I read that is one of the BIG issues with iphones that have been taken apart to have the screen and battery replaced) .... any thoughts?

You can try another SIM card. If it still not work, that's the problem of your phone. You need to take it to repair. As far as I know, the iPhone 6 cannot be activate without SIM card.

Hello SAM,

First check from software level to fix your fault,

Settings--> General --> Reset --> Reset Network Settings

Or check with " Erase All Content and settings" Note: All data will be lost on the phone

If the fault couldn't be solved in software level you have to

Hardware Troubleshoot

Check any sim contact missing or bent

  • As you mentioned if the LCI triggered you should have to clean the area with isopropyl alcohol
  • Check the SIM voltage

if non of above could solve the fault you may have to replace AS3922 chip to fix the fault (Sound BGA reworking skills required) in this step if any mistake you made, few functionalities wont work anymore including NFC

Officially, you should required to sim card to activate your phone.

Hope this answer help you to fix your phone by your self.

Good luck!

Do NOT do this! You have a water damaged phone with a hardware defect. Attempting to restore has a big chance of bricking your phone and making it permanently unusable.

Hi Buddhika Mahesh ,

I am not in the IOS, stuck on activation screen.

The sim contacts are looking ok, nothing bent, I can't really reach the area as the sim case cover is in the way.. should I just try to dip some isopropyl on a q-tip anyway?

Replacing chips is out of my expertise.
