I am in Mexico and my iPhone does not activate on any network. If I set network to manual, I see a list and if I select, the [hne always show no services.

 

How to fix?

I agree with xl post.

If you find your iphone 5 is restricted by some carrier,You will need to unlock your iphone 5 to work with mexican sim card.For unlocking you can approach your service provider or else try to buy an unlocking service from any one of the online unlocking service provider like Unlocking4U.com  Here you can  unlock your iphone by Remote unlocking method.

you may have to call telus.
Alot of people dont know they have international blocks on your account,
for example some people with not so great credit have blocks so they didnt have to pay a 500$ deposit.
in the long run its actually cheaper to buy a sim card from a carrier in mexico and go on prepaid for the time your down there.

Of course, you want to make sure your phone is unlocked before getting the foreign SIM.

For about $150 vs. Telus charge of $35 once your account has been active 90 days.
