hello folks, this is my first post - I found the site by accident and it's a delight for an audiophile like me... Hi-Fi I know but phones I don't... Probably like a total idiot I've just bought an 'unlocked' V3 off e-bay. I can use it for vodafone, orange, o2 etc but the trouble is I want to use it for 3 but it just says sim card error when the 3 simcard is installed and the phone won't 'pick up' the 3 network when I search 'available networks' even though the signal's good. The funny thing is that if you 'confuse' the phone by hitting the menu key as it boots up it shows 3 as the service provider but as soon as you hop out of the menu the simcard error message reappears. I've been with 3 since the start and they're great... Have I just wasted money on a good looking but useless V3?? Can anyone offer any advice or would like to buy a V3???!!!
