I am a new member to Gifgaf and have a question. I recently purchased a second hand iphone4 which was operating on the O2 network and now I have inserted my gifgaf sim card. I have been able to dowload everything from my ipod and itunes library and the internet works when I am connected to a wifi network where I have input the password.
However the problem I have is that when the 3G is turned on and I am in the office I get an error message when I try to connect to the internet. 'Could not activate cellular data network. You are not subscribed to a cellular data service'
Please can someone help with this issue? is it becuase the phone is locked to O2 ?
many thanks in advance
