The upgrade to 4.3 changed the game with warranties. If you don't care about the warranty then look in the general forum here. Some have gone back but it trips the new knox counter voiding your warranty.

I bought it second hand with no receipt from someone who bought it from wind in canada, and I am planning on using it on o2 in the UK. I'm pretty sure my warranty is void/useless anyways. I believe I need to downgrade in order to unlock it to o2. Thanks for the advice, ill take a look.

Instead of downgrading entire ROM, try downgrading radio instead

Thanks, I read the link. It says it works on 4.1.2 but no mention of 4.3. Worth a try though. I cant test it for a few more weeks since im back in toronto and the phone is with my girl in the UK.

Does anyone know if there is even sim unlocking services for this phone? Seems like ebay has nothing for t889

I don't know if a service on eBay, but I can attest that I just flashed the modem this afternoon after unbricking my phone with Kies which installed the most recent stock official ROM 4.3 and it worked. I did back up before I did it although I had nothing on the phone. Hope that helps
