    Oh that could be the issue for the activation problem. You'll need an official sim card for whatever network that iPhone is registered in.

    Vodafones have iPhones? Didn't know that.

    And as for restore, put your phone in DFU mode using iReb (google it)

    You can also try running the programs in compatability mode - Windows XP -Service Pack 2 or 3
    Running As Administrator may help as well

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and I finds that helps a lot with this
