    iPhone 5 roaming and international sim

    ok this might apply to few people, what would happen if I have a sim inside the phone from an international company and I still had cricket signal on the phone? want to know if i can use it as a dual phone for when I am in Mexico (cricket signal is still active) and US; in other words which signal would i be receiving? only 1 or both or none?

    i doubt you can even get the international sim card to work.

    here is my experience below

    Cricket iphone 5 in ho chi min city
    vietnam





    I bought 2
    iphone5's in the usa, one black and one white.
    I activated the black one on
    crickets USA network, white one was never activated, then took both of them to
    vietnam.

    I took the black iphone to 2 cell phone stores, both said it
    could not be unlocked. First one put a sim card in, but only waited about 1
    minute before taking it out and saying it would not work. 2nd store just looked
    at the settings and said it was not possible.

    I bought a mobifone SIM
    card, cut it down to fit in the iphone5 and after about 5 minutes of searching
    it located the network. Instead of saying Cricket in the top left hand corner it
    san VNphone or something similar, I forget now. I was very happy

    So
    bolstered with this success I cut down a second sim card and put it into the
    white iphone, no luck. swapped the sim cards between the white and black phones
    and now netiher of them worked. After 10 minutes the black one finally worked.
    So the black one worked with both cards and the white one did NOT work with
    either cards.

    after an hour I switched the black iphone to the original
    sim card since I knew the phone number associated with that card and it never
    found the net work again.

    tha't my
    experience.

    Also the voice mail on these cricket iphone5's has been a
    disaster. after owning it for a few days, all of my visual voice mails were
    erased and people that called me got a recorded message saying my number was not
    valid.

    after an hour at the store and two days latter I got my voice mail
    back but visual voice mail was still not working. In vietnam I checked my voice
    mail and got a recorded computer message stating I had 80 new voice mails and my
    inbox was full. I only had 8 new voce mails.

    I'll try to restore the
    phone in itunes, although Ive never done that before.

    UPDATE, bought a vinaphone sim card and it does not work either. it is recognized and shows vinaphone 13.0 under genera setings, but only gives a searching message.
