    Default Can I still activate with original sim?

    Almost a year ago my brother bought me an iPhone 3Gs from the UK.
    I live in South Africa so I used the original sim and activated the phone.
    The original sim was an O2 sim. When I put it in the phone I had service even though I am not in the UK.

    I then jailbroke and unlocked the phone so I could use my South African Vodacom sim.

    I now want to upgrade to OS 4.0 and jailbreak and unlock again.
    However I checked the original O2 sim in my phone and it now says no service and under carrier it says sim not provisioned. A year ago it had service in SA. Has the sim card been deactivated because I have not used it in a year?

    My Question is, will the O2 sim card still activate the iphone? I am scared to upgrade to OS 4 and then not be able to get past the activation screen. Does anyone know if the sim will still work?

    Any o2 sim should work to activate it, even if it is no longer in service, so you should be fine

    Thanks, are you 100% sure though? Do you know anyone who has used an on out of service sim? Im just being very very cautious because if it wont work it will take me a couple of weeks to get hold an O2 sim in South Africa.

    I have an old prepaid O2 sim I use to activate O2 iphones when I get them. I have tons of AT&T sims that I use for US phones and it works the same.
