Help with new 3G iPhone in UK...
I received a 3G iPhone from eBay yesterday that didn't have an O2 (the British carrier) sim card but a Turbo-Sim card instead. I stupidly plugged it into my laptop with no sim so I couldn't access anything on the phone itself and I couldn't go any further with out restoring it and updating on iTunes so I'm on the 2.2.1 FW with the baseline 2.30 or something that can't be unlocked.
I then tried my own Orange sim card with the Turbo-Sim but it kept rejecting it - do I need to buy a pay-as-you-go O2 sim card to get the phone started and linked to iTunes then use my original sim card and a turbo-sim?
I seen ones advertised on eBay that can work on 3G phones with that 2.30 baseline or whatever - how reliable are these?
Thanks for your patience - as you can see I'm not exactly on the ball when it comes to these things, I'm pretty good with technology (or so I thought) but I am completely out of my league this time.
Any help is greatly appreciated, I've searched Google and forums like this for hours and hours but to no avail - there are just too many options!
Thanks in advance. :)
