    SIM card registration failed?

    Bought an N95 from a user here, they are offline just now though so I was wondering if any of you knew what this meant? It really can't be the SIM card though, can it? I just bought it 15mins ago. This is on the Orange network btw, and its a N95

    You need to ring orange and register the simcard.

    Really? Anytime I've gotten a SIM card I've never needed to register it, is this a new thing

    Orange have always done it - or at least the last year or so i've used them.

    I just noticed from documents that this phone wasn't previously a Pay as you go, it was a pay monthly if this makes any difference

    That wouldn't make a difference unless the phone is locked to a specific network, such as Vodafone / Orange. Orange require you to register. Other networks don't. HTH

    Ahh right I didn't know this, I've always been with O2 or T-Mobile. Thanks alot guys! I'm gonna register it just now

    By the way, it can take up to 24 hours for it to actually work.

    How does the N95 rate on PAYG?

    I really like the look of that phone but thought running all the web stuff would simply be too expensive at prepay rates.

    T-mobile would be best- I think they do unlimited surfing for £1 a day.

    Its working just now though. But to register on the orange website its asking me to put in 4-digit identity code

    the four digit code should be in the text they send to you after registration?
