Are you sure your iPhone is unlocked? Usually only those bought direct from Apple remain unlocked, all others lock to the network of the first SIM inserted.

I've worked it out now. You have to turn on find my iPhone. And login with your Apple ID and password. It will then let the sim work. But this then has to be done each time you swap it back to another network.

Yep. That's one of the Apple security measures.
