I don't understand - as my understanding was the region-lock was only for the INITIAL activation of the phone in it's home market, IE it was activated at some point in the US with a US sim!?
It would figure now that it has been rooted/ROM replaced it wouldn't region lock again?
The phone did have a black-listed IMEI - but worked on roaming here with my US sim prior to porting the number to Google Voice
region free and sim lock are 2 different things.
sounds like you need the sim unlock code
I used freeunlocks.com,you have to do a trialpay thing but there may be one that suits your needs?
cost me just under £5 and I got 4 unlock codes,network,provider,sub-provider and defreeze.
my phone is now sim unlocked and sim unlock also does region lock
