iPhone 4 asks to connect to itunes every time i insert another sim card

My new iPhone 4 asks me to connect to itunes every time i insert a new micro-sim card.
I just got a new iPhone 4 on warranty at the Apple Store, the genius plugged the phone on a computer and activated it for the first time with my Fido micro-sim in it, and it got activated.
Although if I switch the micro sim to a Bell or Rogers one, the phone changes screens and shows me the connect to itunes screen... Does that mean that my iPhone is Locked or Unlocked?
Thank you.

iPhone 4s not registering sim error message Insert valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate phone

There is no PIN Lock on the phone, checked it on a Blackberry and it works just fine. Did what Apple suggested and have done a restore. When switching on the phone again, it still shows the same error message. Is there perhaps something else I can do that might solve the problem?

 

After a week of having this phone, I still cannot activate it.

 

Last resort, I am going to the Apple Shop today to get it sorted out. Just wanted to know if I have explored all means before having to resport to taking time off work to go there.

 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

I have an iphone that I just deactivated SIM card removed - I still want to sync with iTunes but keep getting error message that there is no SIM card installed

I have an iphone 3GS that I have inactivated as of today. I still wish to sync this phone with iTunes (did a restore as I transferred my data to a new iPhone).  However, iTunes is giving me an error message that there is no SIM card installed in the iPhone Im attempting to activate.  Ive powered off the phone, held the power button & home button until iTunes popped up with restore note.  Re-did the restore (twice) but still coming up with same error message.

Insert Sim

Hi All, a noob Im afraid, so bear with me. I recently got a second-hand 3GS (activated), and a friend tried to unsuccessfully unlock it. I had to restore to factory settings, BUT of course, the phone is now asking me to insert a valid sim etc. My question is, can ANY AT&T sim be used to activate it, such as a pay as you go/use type? I dont really want a 2yr contract etc.

TS1275 My Iphone 3 is unlocked but still says no sim how do I program it to use my simple mobile sim card

I bought the phone from Ebay and verified the serial number with Apple and also verified with ATT that the phone is unlocked.  I was able to restore everything from my stolen iphone onto the new phone from a back up on Itunes so I dont know what else to do to get service to work.  Once in a while it will say no service but restarting or powering on and off will generate the no sim card error.  Ive called Simple Mobile but they dont have any answers for me. 

 

Any ideas on how to get my simple mobil service to work?

 

Thanks
