Probs with viewty-advice needed

Hi all,

I bought a Viewty off ebay earlier and collected locally.

The chap has stated that it was unlocked (from Orange) (orange branding on it) and was working with all Sims including Three.( and fair play I contacted him about this and hes refunded me a few bob .)


Tried Daughters working Orange Sim and it works fine.. how ever

I had since tried Non Active(new) Virgin & T Mobile and the Sims register but Im not throwing funds at new sims to test.

But Nothing with 02, both PAYGO and Contract are flagging up as Inactive USIM.

Is this a bad unlock? and will firmware need updating, Is it worth me getting unlocked again at my local unlockers at £20 cost?

Any Ideas please,? I need it unlocked on 02 Monday for work .:lease::lease:

Cheers

Nicky

i unlocked my daughters veiwty that was on orange and I also flashed it to the generic lg firmware and it works wonderfully..but be aware, lg plugged a gap in thier newer phones that causes corrupted emei and bluetooth address when unlocking...so make sure that you make a good backup copy of your .nv2 file using the lgapp euro program before doing anything because you need to restore your emei and bt address once unlocking is complete.

Thanks Paul Ive done all that- Over and Over- ( except flash firmware) wouldnt know how or where to get it and Ive only got USB cable

Keep resetting the BT and IMEI to what it says on battery

Back up fine- unlock fine- yet still not working on 02 :mad:
