    Question Unlocked iPhone on O2. Should I revirginize?

    Hi there,

    I have an US iPhone Week 46 running 1.1.4, 04.04.05_G unlocked with ZiPhone. I've recently moved to the UK and got a O2 Simplicity plan (they just give me a SIM chip and I have no long-term contract attached).

    However, the logo looks pretty conventional (just says "O2-UK") and clicking on the Voicemail will actually dial to my voicemail (I don't get the visual voicemail).

    I was thinking what would happen if I use ZiPhone again to revirginize my iPhone and then went to iTunes for a legit activation, being an O2 costumer now.

    I remind you that this plan I have (simplicity) is not supposed to be used by iPhone users, but I don't think the carrier could tell the difference.

    Cheers,
    Felipe

    I agree, but I don't get the visual voicemail working.
    And I'm using O2, which is a supported carrier, so isn't it possible for me to do it?

    Will it work? Has anyone else bought an iPhone in the states and activated it with O2?

    Cheers
    Felipe

    Visual voicemail will only work if you sign up for official iphone tariff through itunes. It will not work on previous O2 contracts/simplicity/payandgo.

    ps: You won't be able to activate your iphone with o2 because you have a US iphone.
