    I bought my iphone 4 from Carphone Warehouse, I thought they would supply a temporary micro sim while they sorted out my number transfer (I read that on the O2 site), but no, I was told that the micro-sim supplied, would be updated as soon as my original full size sim was switched off.
    Like many others before me, I have the message "Waiting for Activation – this may take some time". 7 hours as I write, and still not activated. The annoying thing is that I needed to use my phone, so checked to see if the old one works (switched off early this morning) Yes the old phone still works, so am I jeopardising activation by using my old phone? I'm told that it may take 48 hours to activate my phone. I reckon there will be a lot of irate iphone owners out there today. on the packet for the micro-sim, it says "Were better connected O2"
    I think not.

    Unlocked….. If only that were true.

    The moment you put a network SIM in to activate the phone it locks it to that network.
