    Hi guys,

    I have officially unlocked my iPhone 3G from O2. I have connected it to itunes and have gotten the your iphone is unlocked screen. All seems good so far. I then put in an orange sim and it says no service where the signal indicator would be. hmm. I figured id done all the steps needed.

    Any help on this would be great. cheers

    Is it a new Orange SIM? As Orange is now an official carrier, it probably wants to do the official activation thing with the SIM, through iTunes.
