Got an Iphone 3G 16Gb of a mate, when i turn it on, with a 02 sim in it, it says something along the lines of it needs to activate and could take a while. it has no signal and has the same problem with all sims, going to get it unlocked or jailbroken tomorrow but someone told me that when they do that it still doesnt ring out, anyone know anything about this?

I had this with a brand new one, I needed an o2 iphone sim to get it going with the help of itunes (even though it was jailbroken). See if you can borrow an o2 iphone sim off a friend, then after a few monutes of going through and 'activating' the iphone you can put your sim into it without problems.

And there's the answer.

Yes, if he found it, it almost 100% that it's been blacklisted...

Take it back to an O2 store and they'll sort it out.

Hand it into police and request to be informed if not collected with x amount of days/weeks. Yours to keep then and un-block if required!

Only the registered owner can get a blacklisting lifted.
