    Whose your service provider, if its singlepoint just go into a phones 4 u store and they'll give u a new sim card and register it (it'll cost £20 or free if u give them your old sim that u no longer have use for anyway)

    i doubt they are blocked as o2 doesnt block their fones, neither do voda. like theodotcom said, depends on ya service provider. although, most o2 shops have sims for other servivce provider now. go to an o2 shop and they should give u a new sim for free and then get them to call customer services to transfer ya sim details over, its done in under an hour

    I was given a 8310 to look at by some one at work.
    Its been unlocked but it says sim card registration failed.
    Its was originaly on orange but she is using it on O2.
    My vodaphone sim works though.
    Could it be barred off orange and O2 ( Havent a Tmobile card to try) or could it be a problem with the unlocking.
    The O2 card however works in my 8210.
    Thanks

    Most likely is that the phone is barred on 02. I had an 8210 yesterday where all the other network sims were working fine apart from o2 and the o2 sim was working fine in another 2 phones !!

    They hav both been claimed on and are therefore barred.
