Any ideas at this point? It refuses to connect to any networks. I'm out of options.
Edit: I don't know if this makes a difference, but when I do root explorer I can't actually find the nv_data.bin file. It doesn't have anything of the sort in the /efs folder.
Please let me understand a few things ... when you first acquired the phone, was it working normally on Bell prior to the first unlock attempt or you never used it at all until you tried Koodo? Secondly, was the unlock code you got from Bell identical to the one you got from the online service?
I'm trying to establish if it is a case of hardware failure not reported by the previous user especially if you bought it pre-owned from the secondary market. If you are not sure of the previous usage history, it could be a faulty or disconnected antenna which may require professional service. On the other hand if you are sure it was working fine prior to the unlock attempt, try the following ...
1) From the dial pad, enter *#197328640#
2)  UMTS
3)  DEBUG SCREEN
4)  PHONE CONTROL
5)  NETWORK LOCK
6)  PERSO SHA256 OFF
7) Press Menu => Back button and go all the way back to Step 3) above
8)  COMMON
9)  NV REBUILD
10)  NV REBUILD
Reboot and restart and let's see if this does it.
