I bought the 3g iPhone on it's UK launch and gave my original iPhone to my wife, after swapping the SIM cards over, and all was fine. When the 3gs came out, I gave my wife the 3g and again swapped out he SIMs. The problem is, on four occasions since the, an error message has appeared on her iPhone "Wrong SIM detected - please connect to iTunes". Once verified on iTunes, the 3gworks fine again - until the next time the message appears - usually at the most inconvenient moment!

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening and how to correct it?

NB after the 3rd time I did a full factory reset on the 3g, but this obviously did not do the trick?

?? - Still have the original iPhone here. I'd give the carrier a call. Surely they would know if there is some incompatibility between the sims in the two phones.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
