DINC2 unlocked but doesn't recognize SIM in Panama...help!!!
hi. i just got this phone in the states before coming down to panama. it is verizon, but i called them and they gave me the code and now the phone is unlocked....but i can't get coverage here in panama. i've tried sim cards from a few of the local operators and none of them seem to work. i sure hope someone can help....here's what i've done so far: (oh, pls b patient, i'm a bit of a technophobe)
-unlocked sim. phone gives me sim lock is disabled message....that means i'm good to go, right/
-set phone to gsm only mode.
-software is androaid version 2.3.4
verizon global services told me that everything was as it should be and that the phone should work w/ a local sim card so i'm not really sure where to turn to......hopefully someone here can help. verizon also told me that the phone should work on the frequencies here. i have a claro sim card, but have also tried movistar, digicel, and masmovil. i was told that they use either 850 or 1900.
so, i'm totally stumped. hopefully i'm missing something stupid....btw, tried the sim in other phones (from europe and panama) and it worked w/ them. don't think it's a hadrware problem, but am i missing something? is there a setting change? do i need some kind of software update?
