How did you unlock this phone if you still have an unfulfilled contract? If you hacked it to unlock, those procedures are unreliable and subject to re-locking. Jailbreaking can't be discussed in this forum and would be a bad choice.

If its anything like Australia you can have the phone unlocked for free even while on a contract. They simply don't care anymore so long as you keep paying your contract.
I use multiple sim cards for various parts of the world that i commonly travel to to keep costs down.
I would advise to call your telco again and have them resend the unlock sequence again (its a long path from telco-apple etc).
In AU the telco even sends an sms advising of the unlock completion.
Also make sure you do a full power cycle for the unlock to take effect.

Thanks 777 - appreciate it. Will try my provider again when I'm next back in the UK, but that sounds like a good plan.
Modular747 - no need to preach. I'm still paying my bills to my UK provider - it just seems a shame that the phone isnt being used (and I'm stuck with an 8 year old Nokia).

Why didn't you answer the question? How, EXACTLY, did you "unlock" the phone?
If it wasn't unlocked by the carrier, then it was hacked.
