I imagine "normally" a lot less time than it will take today or tomorrow, as half the world tries doing the same thing.

Hey,

I turned off my old phone with normal sim in and turned it back on. It then said my sim was inactive.

Restarted the Iphone 4 with microsim and it is all working!!! :smileyvery-happy:

Give it a try.

Restarted both phones and now I've got "No Service" on both! There was a problem with the first microsim they tried to swap so they gave me a second SIM. Hope it's not swapped to the other one!
