    Hi Guys,

    Newbie iphone 3g user but long term mac user here, so after my formal introduction here are my findings!

    After resetting my 3UK simcard in my other phone (htc touch diamond yuck!!) and using it with the rebel sim (latest firmware downloaded) i can happily report.

    1. full 3g access to 3 uk network
    2. full signal and no drop outs so far
    3. sms working fine
    4. calls not tested yet as at work! *ahem*
    5. wifi working

    I was very apprehensive about ordering one of these proxy sims due to a lot of reports of them working or not working or working for a while and then packing up.

    From my initial findings it's going well and happy with my purchase so far, of course a software unlock would be better but in the meantime this is working as good as expected.

    Will update everyone in a few days with more findings :)

    My location feature working ok, not as good as with the O2 sim but not too bad, beejiveim works fine as well as google apps as well.

    No drop outs of the signal yet!

    woohoo a thread all to myself haha... well quick update....

    my old htc diamond on 3uk was to say the least sh*t with the signal in my home, half the time it measured no signal or maybe 1 bar..

    the iphone with the same 3uk sim now has a full signal everywhere i go, i always used to say i hate the iphone and would never buy one, look at me now!
