Hello,
    I am using an Iphone 4 originally bought and used in the USA on At&T.  I jailbroke and unlocked the phone (using redsnow and ultrasnow) and am trying to use it during my few months on business here in New Zealand.

I bought a 2 Degrees data microsim card and have been unable to use it.  When I have my phone on it will either say No Service or Invalid SIM.  I have changed the APN settings but this did now fix the problem.   Any other suggestions?  Your help is greatly appreciated.

have you tried manually selecting 2degrees or if you cant see that then vodafonenz?

and make sure your phone is set to use 900/2100Mhz 3G

Not sure what u mean by manually selecting 2 deg or vodafone. are u saying I should just try to use a vodafone microsim?

i know the iphone 4 is compatible with 900Mhz 3G. is there a way that I have to set it to use that?

No point trying a manual network selection this is a stupid idea if the handset can't see the SIM and a Vodafone SIM will not work either
