Sim activation failed on new iphone 4s

Hi I just got my new phone today and also got my sim cut down to size at a local store, trouble is i cant now authenticate the sim on the new phone. Looking more closly it looks like the sim has been choopped to close on one side so that a tiny bit of the chip is now covered.

 

Will this mean i would need to ditch this sim and order a new one? if this is the case can someone send me a new micor sim?

 

Feeling frustrated this has happened as i cant recieve any calls at all now.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Nick

Does it say no sim inserted? I had this with my iPhone 4 have you tried plugging in and activation your phone via USB with the micro sim inserted?

Re: Sim activation failed on new iphone 4s

so your suggesting that the sim is now screwed if the chip is hidden just a tiny bit?

If the gold bit has been touched @ all, the sim will NOT work.
