    Default iphone 4s sim activation problem

    hi
    missus has just upgraded and she had a 4s which we decided to sell on

    this phone used to be unlocked and about 15 months ago she got it exchanged at an apple store

    its been updated to ios 8 and I sold it yesterday presuming it was still unlocked im now getting this message

    the Sim card that you currently have installed in this iPhone is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server.

    now im a bit stumped as I thought its unlocked but now im not sure what network its locked too

    3 and 02 don't work

    looking at this thread it seems to be a common problem [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    any ideas

    Tell Apple, if it was bought from them direct it should be unlocked, stands to reason the replacement should be the same.
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    Was it originally bought from Apple direct?
