Hi, I recently bought an iPhone 4S online, I got a good deal and it seemed good at the time, however, when I received it, it had a Vodafone SIM inside from a terminated pay monthly contract (so the seller says), I bought a PAYG SIM and did a complete factory reset, seemd a good idea at the time, now going to set the phone up again, and activate SIM, i can only get to a screen which says 'Only compatiable SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carrier's store to receive a replacement SIM card'. I have now thrown the original SIM away and when taking it to Vodafone store they told me it may have been blacklisted. I'm concerned I have been scammed by an insurance knck wich i have heard about, nevertheless, as far as I'm concerend, I got a great deal on a excellent phone which I want to get working, preferably without jailbreaking. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
