iphone 5 activation with simpati sim ???

I'm in Sanur having received a couple simpati sims back home.

I've put the sim in & my iphone 5 is now requiring activation.

(I put the other sim in my iphone 3gs & works fine).

Any thoughts on how I should activate?

Did you get the phone unlocked from your Australian carrier? This needs to be done here in Australia before you leave. If you have done that go to one of the places that sells SIM cards and ask one of the guys to help you , they are whizzes on setting up your phone. In Sanur go to Hardies they sell sims and should be able to help, pending your phone is unlocked .

Yeah, definitely ask the locals to help you like chichy said- they know way more than me and Telstra combined!!

You just need to put the sims in and either plug into Itunes or get onto WIFI. Should be fine.

Yup connect to a wifi network and it'll reactivate over the "cloud"
