    if u have an old iphone activated already,when u update it to a new firmware,itunes once again checks if the fone is activated or not and then activates it widout credit check and signing up for contract because u r already activated but if u have a simcard which is not authorised or activated it doesnt let u through and doesnt activate ur phone so u cant use it anymore until u jailbreak and unlock it.

    If u r officially activated before then u dnt have to worry just go on and update ur phone but u might not be able to unlock it for a little while.

    hope it'd help,All the best

    Default activation

    ok, I can confirm that you can activate with any o2 sim card, I used a paygo one, I also used a new itunes account I setup using the redeem voucher codes.

    the activation process only took a few seconds.

    The bad news is (and I'm sure comes as no surprise to anyone) that as soon as you put a non o2 (in my case) sim in the phone, it locks down to the activation screen.

    taking the sim out gives you an itouch with appstore, but that's about it.


    my gevey sims didn't work either, never confirmed if they did work or not, but maybe a turbo sim clone will do the job?

    edit 2 - putting the o2 sim back in, its trying to activate offline, so just to confirm, no phone functionality with this 'activation' process
