I just bought an iPhone today at the Apple store, and when I went to charge it I got the above message in the center of the screen and "No SIM" in the top left corner. When I connected to iTunes it also gave a similar error message. I took the SIM out and reinstalled it, and things worked to activate the phone, but the when it started syncing I got the same message on the phone. After the sync finishes I can try to remove and reinstall again, but what if this happens again? Will updating to 1.02 fw help?
