Much the same
I have a c01 here in the UK, still wearing factory stickers. A very poor buy, considering I can't make a call with it. I have looked high and low but can't get anywhere with it. Sharp/kddi/AU I have asked them all. No can do. Although I read a Canadian chap had his unlocked by them, they simply won't at any cost.
I can't even get a phone shop to look at it.
To be honest, I know about as much as my gran about mobiles. I'm a quick study, but would rather pay, if there was somebody to pay.
Any positive direction would be much appreciated. Best advice so far is to bin it and try to forget.
