Sorry for kicking this up again.....

Managed to get the unlock directly from the provider and it still refuses to unlock.....

You mention stock recovery - what is that??? - maybe this is the answer to my problem?

Thank you in advance.

If you restored a nandroid backup you have a custom recovery like cmw. If u used ruu then u have stock recovery.

So..... this might be the key to unlocking the phone......

I'll give it a try..... errrrr sorry to be a twat but I've forgotten the process. The file you have told me to get is 6.66mb.

What do I do with it?

Sorry in advance, and a virtual drink being sent your way.

Totally stumped.

I have absolutely no idea on what I am doing wrong with sim unlocking (never had a problem before ever)

I've returned the phone to stock (as far as I am aware) got the sim code directly from t-mobile/ee and yet the phone still wont unlock the sim.

Is there anything anyone can think of that I have missed (in terms of getting this phone back to 100% stock?) Could it be related to fastboot/cwm should I remove them and relock the phone as well? Will that help?

If you have stock rom, kernel and recovery it should unlock fine. But i have seen many of these reports lately that the phone just don't accept the code.

Maybe going to the carrier shop can help you ?

I'm probably going to end up sending it to t-mobile. However, if they wanted to check they will see that I have fastboot on the phone.... Isn't that a dead give away that the phone has been rooted?

They will always know it's been messed with because the bootloader says relocked (or still unlocked)

But unlocking does not necessarily means no warranty or service.

Right.... thanks for all your help.

I guess I will bite the bullet, send it to t-mobile/ee and see what happens.

Thanks for all of your help.
