Have you had it from new mate? Sad to say however you could of been blocked, I know there is a no signal issue that is hardware related and can be fixed. However if you bought it second hand the chances are, it's been barred.

If its under a year old I'd get an appointment at an Apple store and take it for them to look at, my sister in law did with hers after her signal died as a result of a dodgy screen replace and they just did a straight swap on the spot with no questions asked!

Its Brand new. Its actually my second one as the last one was replaced by warranty after it decided it was just gonna turn off and never turn on ever again. Its just had a master reset and now it keeps coming up with waiting for activation. Its just not doing anything. This is becoming beyond a joke. I have had this one since November.

In that case do as fox said, a lot of the time they can be very helpful - most of the tech guys are decent and know what they're on about.

If It's on O2 I've been told that they're doing something with their transmitters. Don't hold me to this though as it's only a rumor.

I also have the 3gs on O2 and have experienced signal drops, massive gains, having full signal and 3g and piss poor Internet. My guess would be the transmitters.

Reset network settings.

Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings

If you've got a password on the phone it'll ask for it.

I have put my simcard into another phone and it works fine. the Iphone just doesnt want to work. I have tried a master reset. I have tried the network reset as hendrix said and still nothing. I think a trip to the o2 shop is in order.

If it is saying waiting for activation then you need to get a activation card.

Mine did this. Took it to the Apple store to see a 'Genius' and he blagged it. Said that the transmitter (or something) had broke, because I'd clearly dropped it, due to there being a scratch on the corner.

Long story short, he asked me for £140 to replace it, and I walked off.

Right.... I took it to the o2 shop. They gave me a new sim to see if that would solve it. But no. Its still not working. Im quite raging because i was planning on using it to get around glasgow using the sat nav app i have on it. Im going down to the o2 shop again early tomorrow morning. If they say i have to send it off im taking it to the apple store in glasgow to speak to them. This is the second one that has gone faulty on me and the warranty still hasnt ran out for the first one!! Im beginning to go off the phones to be fair.

Your best dealing straight with Apple, like I said earlier my sister in laws phone went crappy when (I assume) the aerial connection got broke whilst having the screen repaired (a common problem apparently). However, when she got to the Apple store in the Trafford centre she could get a perfect signal, so the tech guy said he couldn't really test it if that was the case and just gave her a straight swap. The straight swap phone broke about a week later though when the speaker stopped working so she went back and again they just swapped it there and then. Other than the 1st replacement breaking I can't really fault their service, and the guys in our local O2 shop are a bunch of c***s!
