Hi all,

 

Can you help please. My Vodafone number has been ported across to GiffGaff today which is great except that I was told that the GiffGaff microsim would work fine as the iphone 4s comes unlocked. Well, I have inserted the microsim and I am getting the "Activation Required" message. I have tried all ways including via cellular network and itunes without success. I have contacted Vodafone and they say that they will email me within 72 hours. How bad is that. Apple cant help either. Do I presume that only Vodafone (in my case) can obtain an activation code on my behalf and so it takes this long for Vodafone / Apple to sort this out?

 

The GiffGaff sim works fine in my old Samsung jet but I am now gutted that I have a very expensive good looking paper weight!

 

thanks,

Smiley Sad

Dave
