    Question activated enquiry

    Hi all just a stupid question,
    Recenlty purchased an IPhone 4S via ebay, it is on ios 6.0.1 and is locked to vodaphone so I got a vodaphone sim and followed the activation process but when I ran an imei check it said that the phone was not activated so I am a bit confused if any one can help it will be most appreciated.
    imei check reads as follows:

    Warranty: Active
    Registered: Yes
    Activated Status: No
    Purchase Date: Validated
    Sim Locked: Locked

    thanks

    After your attempt(s) at activation, did you attempt to make a phone call to verify whether or not the activation was successful?

    Have you called vodaphone so they can make sure your SIM is activated in their system?

    If the phone call was successful and you can also receive calls then it's safe to assume that the SIM is activated. Still, if you're unsure, call Vodaphone to confirm, as suggested by Sean.
