Welcome to the board! Assuming simple mobile is not in USA and uses 850/1900/2100 UMTS or any if the known GSM bands, you should be ok. On GSM/UMTS phone works better with 2.4.29 firmware.
if you are in the States, then you are a bit SOL. Not quite though. Google for droidbandunlock for more information.
Read the board here too.

so sorry to hijack, but I had to ask this, when you say 2.4.29 firmware works better on GSM/UMTS, may I know how does it work better?

If I update it to 2.4.3 outside US, it would degrade the signal strength? would there be a possiblity that the phone needs to be re-unlock again?

Thanks alot!

Hi everyone!

I have a similar problem with D2G with Europe GSM sim-cards..
Got the phone from States unlocked from vzw, plugged-in a local sim - no signal/no service. Although card is working normally in other phones.
Checked with 2 other operators - still zero result.

Rooted, installed Fission - same 0
SBF'ed to 2.4.29 - same, zero result.

Where else could you suggest looking at to fix the gsm networks working?

thanks in advance, Michael
