My S2 appears to have locked itself after updating firmware via KIES


Active Member
Hello all,

I bought a Samsung S2 on these forums which was unlocked (previously locked to 3 network) all was working fine until this afternoon when I updated the firmware via KIES. Upon switching on it now asks for the network pin number - does this mean the handset is now locked again and if so is there a way round this problem?

Many thanks,
