Hi all, striaght to the point, I have a iPhone 4 currently on XT, getting full signal, I pop my Skinny microsim in and get no service. Put XT Sim back in and full signal as usual.
I have updated to ios5.1 and also went to and applyed the Skinny APN settings, 
Am i missing something obvious?

It says to put SIM in phone and dial 456 to activate, however I've tried that all I get is a call failed as I have no signal.

That is to activate the account

The SIM is not active in there systems so its not logging onto the network
