    Ok so i have gotten hold of an iphone 3g.

    It has never been connected via usb to a computer. The guy charged the iphone and that is it.

    Now at the moment, when i turn the iphone on the main menu comes on with contacts, calculator, sms etc etc etc, but it wants me to insert a sim card.

    so i have an o2 contract simcard that i have been using with my nokia, when i put it in the iphone it just says NO SERVICE.

    Do i need to connect the iphone to itunes for the first time or something?

    :( help thank you

    You say you "have gotten hold of an iphone", so I guess it didn't come through O2 or Apple.

    Is it a UK phone, or did it come from another country originally?

    iPhone 3G works with ANY o2 SIM.

    All you have to do is insert it and connect to iTunes and it will work.
