Oh boy, please help whizzkids! I know you knof this guy and I followed his guide as it was more on my wave length lol. A day later though my o2 sim seems banned/locked or something as had no service for about 5 hours! He uses network 'telefonica 02 limited' and my phone is all of a sudden saying "sim not allowed on that network' basically. Also 3g hasn't been working most of the day and no options are working now. Please help!?

It's not banned. Or locked. 'Telefonica O2 UK Limited" _IS_ "O2 UK" (as displayed on 2.2).

If you get the message "sim not allowed on that network" I'd guess that the O2 network is no longer available where you are (signal strength?) and your phone is defaulting to a different network in your area.

Well I've done nothing so all of a sudden 3g just seems done in my town to me?! :D I've been a few places today with no luck! :P

Should I use a better rom anyway reckon???? Which one is this exactly I've used???

3G is not working eh? Hmmm... Did you set it up?

After flashing to a New ROM you have to enter the APN for the O2 network provider before you can use data services including 3G and MMS. For some reason O2 doesn't broadcast the information for the handset to do it automatically.

Use the search feature of this board to look for O2 and APN

NOTE: Remember that O2 PAYG and O2 Subscription have different APN settings.

If it would be locked, you would see message "USIM is not usable in this terminal" or something like that.

Not the case, this is how I did it after following a guide on the GiffGaff website.

The guide is written from scratch in my own words and not "copied" from anywhere.

I have also been updating and editing the guide daily when people are having problems etc.

Plenty of novices out there like appreciate both your efforts! Now you're all here :D...........I can confirm I'm back up and running but only with Edge 3g. I hadn't go to the stage of resetting my APNs so how can I lose total service for 3-4 hours - no texts, calls, 3g????????

Very worrying!

PS thanks for all the immediate replys EVERYONE!

Well if you didnt change anything at all, and now you are back up and running (in a fashion) then it shows that O2 had problems with their service in your area....

In an ideal world, where you have 'borrowed' sections of text or tried-and-tested procedures, or referenced tools that others have created, there should also be clear acknowledgements, with links back to the original sources. In most cases with your San Francisco blog entries, those sources are threads on this forum (although perhaps sometimes that is indirect, where the borrowing was from other 'keen' writers who have failed to attribute their sources correctly). Directing people back here would not only save you some support issues but would hopefully also provide both feedback to the original creators and the chance of boosting the income of this site. Supporting this site will probably lead to improved and new items that might make good blog entries in future...

Yes - a Small guide with one ROM on exactly what to do is very neat.

Mine is now getting HUGE - but it has to cater for everyone.

I find this guide to be very good for n00bs who can get easily disoriented on the forum. Good guide! :D Can't understand the hate because it mentions Modaco and Sebastian404.

It didn't when he first posted it. He was shamed into adding the attribution later.

He said he forgot it, when putting a guide together it's easy to let some things out. Whatever, the end result looks good and I think it is very useful to a group of audience.

He's 'forgotten' attribution in other places, too. And it was so very 'kind' of him to host the downloads elsewhere so he didn't need to link to the source threads here, wasn't it?

Yep it certainly is your ROM, as it says at the top of the guide :D

I can remove the guide if you like, or add remove parts as you see fit. Just trying to share my experience and limited knowledge :P

Again, you mentioned Seb's name and Modaco, you gave credit to them. This is a great help for lots of n00bs, don't see any reason to remove it. The more testers we have, the better it is because we can detect bugs and maybe find fixes.
