Is it possible to remove the SIM card from this locked phone and use it in the alternate phone so that you can get a text or receive verification code. Once it is received you can change the SIM card back to the iPhone itself. If you are not sure how the change or remove the SIM card from this iPhone, please let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
