I upgraded my iPhone 3GS to iOS 5 a few days ago. The upgrade went smoothly; however, I'm having trouble activating my phone.
My wireless provider is O2 in the UK and my O2 SIM is in the phone, but when I connect to iTunes I get this error: "There is no SIM card in the iPhone you are attempting to activate. Please disconnect and insert a SIM card in the phone."
I've also tried activating over WiFi, but am getting an error message like "Activation servers are temporarily unavailable".
iTunes on my Windows x64 laptop is latest (10.5.0.142) and I've tried rebooting both my laptop and my iPhone several times.
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
