Hi i recently got a giffgaff sim, activated it, added a goody bag, transferred my number over via a PAC code, then didnt realise i had to unlock my iphone 4s, to get it all to work. So i called vodafone on Friday who unlocked if for me.
I received an email from them this morning to say it was unlocked and all i needed to do was plug it into itunes to finish set up....
so i plugged it into itunes and it says....There is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to activate.....
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW?
Seriously considering get my number back and going elsewhere...i've done everything i was supposed to do.
Please can someone help?

It may be expecting the Vodaphone sim in while it unlocks the phone. Once it's updated and unlocked then you can put your giffgaff sim in.

have you got the sim card in the phone when you are plugging it into itunes. i unlocked my iphone 4s so i could use my sim and i had to have the giffgaff sim in the phone and the phone switched off when i plugged it into itunes it took a couple of attempts but it worked after about 3 gos of plugging it in and clicking check for updates

1. kept the giffgaff sim in the phone
2. switch of the phone, power off (keep plugged into into itunes)
3. hold down power button for 5 seconds then hold in home button for 15 seconds
4. itunes should now detect phone, just do a restore..
