If you cancel a contract the sim card will no long work.

So you took out an iPhone 3G contract. and then cancelled it? that right?

And now you want to know what they will do etc with the sim and the iPhone?

If you cancel a normal (none iPhone) contract in the UK they ask for the phone back. I dont no how this will work with the iPhone TBH. Did you pay anything for the iPhone? Because i cant believe they will allow you to keep it else it defeats the point of the Pay and Go if you can take contracts out and cancel them and keep the iPhone...

no no i payed for the early termination fee(well they sent it to me) but i want to know if they ban sometype of number in my iphone by accessing my sim card. I heard that they possibly ban the number's phone or something from the network... i want to know if its true.

O okies.

Well they can ban the iPhones ID number if they wanted to. But if you have paid for the iPhone i have no idea what will happen.

You no the iPhone cant be unlocked yet dont you? well i no of no way yet (but have been in Oz for 2 months so may have missed the news)!

well i'm actually with ATT but its not a big deal if they do while unlikely. I can still use T-Mobile if for some reason they start to ban iPhone IDs. And yes you can unlock the iPhone 3G(hardware unlock(TurboSIM), not software).

should be fine

I did what you are asking. I am on AT&T here in USA. I canceled, paid early termination fee, and popped my work sim card from my AT&T treo into my iPhone. Works like a charm. They don't do anything to deactivate the actual phone - they just deactivate the sim.
