I bought an iphone on ebay, apparently on 02. I have activated it OK, but it shows no bars of signal.

It does show O2 next to the bars and 3G.

What I am wondering is has it been blocked? I checked on this site:
http://www.amta.org.au/pages/amta/Check.the.Status.of.your.Handset
and it said no. Also would it show the logos if it was blocked?

I am central in London so I can't believe I genuinely have no signal.

Anyone have any ideas?

If it was barred, it would work outside of the UK, so if thats a Australian website it will say no.

I don't think itunes would have let you activate the handset if it wasn't on their network? Usually it comes up with a sim card provider error message if you try and activate it with say a Vodafone sim, while the handset is on O2.

What type of SIM do you have? Is it a 3G card ie with 3GPP or similar on the SIM at the end of the long number.

Also you could try this (found this somewhere else that helped with someone's phone that had similar issues)

Go to Settings: General: Network: Disable 3G. Then reset your iPhone.

Go to Settings:General:Reset.

Click Reset Network Settings

Enter your passcode if you have created one.

Click the red button: Reset Network Settings

The iPhone will take a minute to shut down, then it will reboot.

See how you get on

Thanks! That worked!

Surely it would be more of an awesome iPod touch with a super duper camera than a paperweight?
