That mirrors my experience with a friend's 3 SIM last week. This one was 
bought with one of their  USB data dongles. After my GTA02 with moko10 
rejected the SIM we tried it in his Nokia Communcator which also failed to 
recognise it.

If you look at 3's T&Cs you will see that it's a violation to use the SIM in a 
non-3G device anyway.
