apparently 3g icon shows, settings appear correct but says 'cannot activate data cellular network'

any ideas?

Was in Aus in July in my iPhone (3G then) worked seamlessly. I'm on O2.

Had a 3G for ages and used to sync it with itunes on my PC but it got a virus and I couldn't be arsed to fix it so just use my laptop now. I want to instal this new OS, if I instal itunes on my laptop and plug the usb cable into the phone what will happen, will it wipe all my songs & apps and that off the phone?

purchases made on the phone get copied back. itunes on the computer is the master when you sync the phone is erased.

Hopefully they'll have sorted out the black thumbnail issue in the Camera Roll. Reading up and it seems to be quite common…. both me and my flat mate have it Sad

Multitasking - Can I close an app without going back to the home screen, opening up multitasking, then closing it there? I.e. can I just close it straight after using it?

What's the best way/deal when buying a iPhone 4g? sorry if this sounds virginal but i haven't really given them much/any of my attention

My interest is mainly due to the 4g camera being much better than the new iPod touch camera and i need a decent camera on me 24/7 so i am considering one…

I also hate contracts, so should i pay for sim free? Any help is appreciated…

So not worth £500 then? Also that would mean i'd have to pay for 3g internet additionally…

Whats a good standard price for a 8gb 3G, great condition, few marks and scratches but nothing on the screen. Still got the box with all accessories? £200- 250 maybe?

I have an 8gb 3G to sell and they look to be going for £150+ on eBay. Phonerecyclebank offer £130 for just the phone (no extra for charger etc). There are other ones that pay slightly more but don't hav great ratings. Check google for comparison websites. I've decided to go with PRB as after fees on eBay, it's not a huge difference. I can keep old charger etc for my new iPhone 4 also.

Marcus, Ive been looking at contracts so not sure if that's any help? FWIW I think tescos works out best in the long run, but they never have any stock. Vodafone was slightly cheaper than o2, but I managed to get money off with a bit of bartering so if you have a contract, maybe try that. Probably wouldn't bother getting it just for camera tho

iphone 4 turned up today, plugged it into laptop and itunes seems to have sync'd all my apps from my old iphone 3g but hasn't copied over the photos & emails which I can live without but most importantly it hasn't copied over the contacts. How do I get the contacts off my iphone 3g onto the iphone 4 without typing them in?!?
