Odd. Have you called Virgin? I know some older sims don't work so maybe they need to send you a new one?

O.k. thanks. I'll give them a call.

:veryangry Lost my Iphone 3gs yesterday in a Wetherspoons - been back and phoned them but no joy:(

I have no insurance and 11 months left on my 13.50 a month o2 tariff.

Only option seems to be to buy out of the contract and get a new year 2 year one with a free Iphone 3gs, really want the G4 but can't afford it - any other suggestions?

Heb 7:4 17-05-2012 11:49 AM

Have you remotely wiped your old phone and sent a message to it? It is useless to a new owner if the IMEI is blocked, so they may return it to you if you send a reward notification.

Failing that, buy a cheap second hand 3GS to see out your contract, and get O2 to send you another sim. You can get a 8gb one for under 100 and a 16gb for just over. Probably be able to haggle a bit these days too. Cheaper than buying out your contract.

Under no circumstances go into a 2 year deal just to get a free 3GS. Absolute rip at this stage with the iphone5 due to come out in September (at which point second hand iPhone 4s and 4s's will come onto the market driving the price down).

Yes, well I reported it lost to o2 so they have blocked it and sending another SIM - where can i get a 3gs for under 100 - any suggestions?

Thanks for the reply

Out of interest, how would you do this? I haven't lost or had mine stolen, but should it someday be, I'd like to be prepared, if i need some sort of number.

I have a new iPhone 4S and have noticed that sound from spotify or something off the internet seems to only come out of the bottom right speaker .

Would anyone with an iPhone 4 please try theirs and let me know if this is normal?

Many thanks in advance

The one on the left is actually a microphone, so don't worry your phone is normal!

I'm also waiting but as always it's a case of trying to second guess Apple.

It will be September/October. No way to know for sure, but that is most likely.
