Have searched the forum, but can't find out what I'm doing wrong... something very obvious I bet!!!

Holding down the Vol-Down button and powering on doesn't cause the phone to go into recovery mode - it just boots normally - so I can't see if S-OFF, etc, is set?

This is a Vodafone Sensation that is a week old.

Anyone point me at my error?

You have to take battery out - reinsert
then hold volume down and power it on
