Default [Q] sim network unlock PIN on N900

Hi, i own a N900 factory unlocked.
playing with some custom roms, i ended that some sims work ok but the other says "sim network unlock PIN"
i tried galaxsim unlock pro, and it says unlocked on every item.
also whatever sim i try (except from one company that works - Claro Argentina - ) got the same message
its like is some form of semi lock ?
i also called samsung, and they say its the vendor fault, they cannot help me
the vendor says its samsung problem .. and here i am
any idea ?

PD: i did not try another sim before flashing custom roms, but the vendor assures the cellphone its lock free
PD2: sorry for my poor english !

1- It is likely your phone is not completely unlocked. Is your phone rooted? If yes, install 'Shortcut Master' app or 'Phone INFO ★Samsung★' app, open 'Secret Codes' menu, scroll down to 7465625 (7465625 means SIMLOCK) and launch this secret code to check for the locking status.

2- Send an email to Samsung to request the unlock code (for more details check your inbox).

Thanks !

Ok, not response from samsung, also i called samsung in my country, and no help.
Called the store, no help.
Tried phone info Samsung (and galaxy unlocker, etc ..) any apps says my phone is full unlocked.
so i try with cellunlocker service (is a webpage) .. and about 4 hours latter i recieved 5 codes
last code was the one that worked, and by the way .. the code is eight zeros ! ("00000000")
So maybe that code could help someone !

Hi,

What cellunlocker service did you use to get 5 unlock codes?

Thanks
