iPhone Virgin Battles Rebel SIM Questions - Help
I am new on this site and new to the world of iPhones. On reading certain threads it appears that I purchased the wrong phone as I have the 3G 8Gb with 2.2.1(5H11) Firmware and BB 2.30.03. The Model Number M489B seems to be different from the other iPhones in the world supplied by carriers that can be unlocked officially so I looked for solutions online.
My colleague has succesfully unlocked many 2G phones but couldn't software unlock the 3G which is when we found out about this version being a tough cookie to crack.
I purchased a piggy back SIM from 'unlockanyiphone.net' and it initially worked well.
For three days it successfully totally unlocked the 3G and I used the Vodafone work SIM I had. All emails etc were working fine and I was surfing the internet using 3G connectivity.
However - Now the SIM doesn't work. It says 'No Service' and 'No SIM Installed'. I have contacted support and they have suggested taking out the sim, putting it in another phone, making calls and then putting it back into the iPhone and switch it on. But to no avail it still doesn't work.
Has any one had the same experience and found a solution to correct the problem?
