I ordered two iPhone 5s's more than a week ago… It was supposed to be delivered this past thursday, but was delayed because they forgot to package my sister's phone and tell me mine will stay in ohio until my sister's arrives so they can package them together so we'll get them the same day… Apparently mine wasn't in ohio, mine was in TX and then TN and is now in OH. I called AT&T and they said they often will tell you they will package them together but sometimes it's easier for them to package them separately and separate times… Mine is expected by tomorrow, my sister's is expected by monday… Mine arrived in OHIO at 10:52 AM yesterday and still says arrived in ohio at 10:52. Why isn't it in Michigan and ready to deliver today? How many hours after do they send it to the next state and how often do they update it?
So this lady I know got this iPhone from eBay in the US. We don't live in the US so obviously an iPhone locked to AT&T is of no use to us.
So the person she bought the phone from sent a paper with instructions on how to activate the iPhone through iTunes. To me this all sounded like the kind of process you're supposed to go through after you've IMEI unlocked a phone. In fact I made some research ad even call AT&T and realized this is exactly the same thing you're supposed to do once the unlocking process is done. Connect phone to itunes, update/restore, accept any carrier update and done phone's unlocked. So I went along with it, I figured this person might have unlocked the phone through IMEI as well so all I had to do was the iTunes part.
Problem is, once the restore process is done I can't activate the phone because iTunes keeps showing this message that the Sim card in the phone isn't compatible. It basically says that the carrier on that Sim card isn't authorized. So I'm stuck. Any ideas? I updated to iOS 7.0.4 and before this the phone had iOS 7.0.2. I don't get the "congratulations" message and the phone keeps saying "No service". And by the way, before this I could navigate the phone, someone had previously activated it somehow.
I'm not sure what am I supposed to do now. I'm starting to think the lady got scammed ad that the phone isn't unlocked at all! I don't know. Any ideas on what could I be doing wrong?
Last bot not least, I've considered using an AT&T (because I know from the time I could navigate the phone it said AT&T) to activate the phone, though I don't have one… But wouldn't this be counterproductive? I mean, if I buy and unlocked phone doesn't that mean I'm already planning to use it with a different carrier? Why would it demand an At&T sim card before allowing you to finally insert one from a different carrier, hypothetically speaking? I don't know. Any help will be kindly appreciated. Thanks for the time.
PD: I don't know the firmware, I can't navigate.
Added (1). I tried using a different Sim card from Movistar and it didn't work either. Also I took the phone to the carrier the lady intends to use it with and they said "The phone isn't unlocked" which I already knew. At that point, of course the phone wasn't unlocked whether the lady was scammed or not. The whole point of connecting it to iTunes is to finally unlock the device.
Added (2). On the paper sent by whoever is it that sold the phone it says the phone is Factory Unlocked, so how am I supposed to interpret this? In the paper says that in the event of having to use a carrier other than T-Mobile (they tested it with that) follow the instructions which pretty much are connecting the phone to iTunes and agreeing to any carrier update, like I said above. But again, I can't even go past the activation part cus it says the Sim isn't compatible, and I've already tried Sims from two different companies and one of them is Movistar which is the AT

The problem is that I m a really heavy sleeper. I wake up sometimes after 12 hours of sleep. I use 5 alarms on my iphone spaced like 10 mins apart and still I can't even hear them but when I wake up they are turned off by me and I don even remember that.
Sometimes I do wake up and just don't go out of bed as its cold and I don't wanna take a bath and go to school.
Even when someone comes to wake me up i start making excuses to myself like i feel a bit sick, schools not worth it today etc so that I don wake up and don feel guilty about it.
I need some good tips on how to wake up. And please be in detail with a list of things i can do.
And don't gimme answers like sleep early cause i do.
