I got an activation sim card from eBay for my old 3Gs worked perfectly

You are sure it's not just blacklisted ??

you dont need the contract SIM, if it's on O2 any O2 SIM will do even PAYG

anyone?

If it was on O2 and it needs an O2 sim to active, then yes. Any O2 sim 'should' work. Don't know if the sim would need to have credit on it though if it were a payg ?
