    the mesage says "the sim card inserted in thos iphone does not appear to be supported

    only compatible SIM cards from supported carrier may be used to activate iphone please insert card that came with your iphone or visit a supported carrier store to receive a replacement sim

    the other thing is the phone just has the usb cable / itunes cd logo on the screen (i assume this is the pre activation screen) but sim is still working as i can see i have rec'd a text msg (but cant access phone to read it) and also i can receive incoming calls

    Your yet to come phone and its sim has been linked with your number and activated hence the problem.

    Now you have two options
    1. Wait for your new phone and its sim
    2. Go unofficial with your current phone and its sim - sure you know the procedure.

    t33jay
    i think it also might be as my phone (2g iphone) was from usa on aT&T i need a iphone aT&T sim to actiate it but it will still be locked so that even o2 wont work (i always thought if locked at&t and o2 would work but itseems that its country dependant ie o2 wont work on usa iphones without unlock and at&t wont work on uk iphones) am i right??

    also is there a unlock yet for 3. 0 ?

    T33 jay i could do with some help on something if you can email me grant.e.smith@ntlworld.com
