Hi All,

I have a Galaxy S2 which is SIM locked to the '3' network in the UK. I have contacted the carrier and they have provided me with an unlock code. However, when I am prompted to insert the code when I put in a different SIM card the code is rejected. I've also tried running the GalaxySimUnlock app which also came up with the same code that I got from my carrier.

My phone was originally updated to stock ICS but I then flashed it to CM 9 and then MIUI. I initially tried the sim unlock with MIUI running. I've now returned the phone to the stock 3 image - it's currently running 4.1.2 baseband I9100NELS1.

Has anyone had this problem before or can you shed some light on what is going wrong - I thought if I contacted the carrier this would be simple!

Many thanks,

Steve

Make your PC's network is sold. You have tried many software unlocking by noon?

Hi duykhanh187,

I'm not sure quite what you mean! I have contacted my carrier and have got what they believe to be a good unlock code but it is not working.

Thank you for your reply,

Steve

Hi Steve,

I've seen the same problem before as well, so I've very keen to see if

Good luck,

Tink!
