Did you buy it because it's way cheaper? Why not save a bit more and buy an original? It's like owning an android but you can't enjoy its' development. That really sucks..

Galaxy N7100 clone, No mobile network
I have the same phone and the same problem. Managed to get root access yesterday after a month of part-time trial and error. Still mobile is locked. I would also appreciate any advice.

I know this is a belated response, but was this issue ever resolved and what carrier were you trying to activate it on. These type of phones can only run on 2g networks and no contracts.
