I have bought an iphone 3g from a friend, and an o2 simplicity sim only deal with 12 month contract.
I have waited over 72 hours but my phone/sim still hasnt been activated. I was told it would be 24 hours maximum by o2.
I have updated to latest itunes 8.2.1 and latest phone software, i have also restored the phone in itunes.
when i put the sim in the phone inthe top left hand corner it says ' searching' then says in the middle of the screen 'waiting for activation this may take some time'.
I can see all of the apps and use them but cannot make any calls whatsoever or texts. I have been in to the settings and turned 3g as told this may work but didnt, I have changed the cellular network data to mobile.o2.co.uk and back to the original setting (forgot what this was). I have tried a soft reset and also changed carrier settings from automatic to o2 and back again a few times but still no joy.
The sim definitely works as i receive signal with my n97.
Any ideas what to do? all help will be repped and appreciated!
