    Once you've got your new iPhone 3G, you'll need to connect to the latest version of iTunes to activate it.

    Before activating

    1. Check your voicemail
    Before you activate your iPhone 3G, make sure you listen to your current voicemails. If you're an existing O2 customer, activation will delete your existing voicemails. If you're transferring an existing number from another network operator, existing voicemails will not be transferred.

    2. Transfer your contacts, music and photos
    Before you activate, migrate your existing mobile contacts into Outlook, Outlook Express on the PC, or Address Book or Entourage on the Mac.

    To activate your iPhone 3G

    *

    Insert the SIM card into your iPhone 3G. (Upgrading Pay Monthly and existing iPhone customers should use your existing SIM card.)
    *

    Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
    *

    Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC (not on the keyboard) using the included cable. iTunes opens automatically.
    *

    Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to activate iPhone 3G and sync your contacts, calendars, music, photos, podcasts, videos, email accounts, and web bookmarks.
    *

    If you're new to O2 and transferring your existing number, contact us with you PAC code if you've not done so already.

    to be honest, im happy to pay £35 a month, im not going to bother unlocking it, it will only bring me bad things, i will jailbreak if its avalable but if its not, its not the end of the world.
