Have reset network settings after putting in sim also to no avail. Anybody know what might be the problem?
Connected to i tunes and did a restore on the phone. When finished it looked for a sim card to activate. I used a Vodafone sim to do this and again it was working fine.
A few minutes later while connected to i tunes i inserted a sim card from O2. It gave the message "Your phone is now unlocked". Still showing O2 logo but no network service.
If the phone was blocked why would it activate and work using Vodafone sim but not work with the sim used to unlock?
