    Just bought a sealed new iPhone from Ebay, I have put my O2 SIM in it which I used in my previous iPhone but now need to ACTIVATE via iTunes.

    What questions will I get asked?...what risk is there that the phone will get blocked or locked during this activation process?

    Can anyone advise?

    If the SIM is a legit iPhone SIM (that is still valid), it will activate the iPhone.
    Remember... you're activating the phone, not the SIM.
    Just connect to iTunes and the phone will activate automatically.
    No questions should be asked of you.

    If the SIM has been canceled, it will take you through the new iPhone activation process where you have to sign up for a new account.
