Help with my phone

I had my SE W580i unlocked a while ago, from Orange to use O2, I ran a software update off the SE website and now my O2 sim won't work! Is there anyway I can undo or reverse the update or am I going to have to pay £15 to get it unlocked again?

Any suggestions greatly apprecciated.

Thanks. x

I don't keep up with unlocking these days so take my comments with a pinch of salt.

Software unlocks don't properly unlock the phone, they just modify the software to allow the phone to run with the different simcard - when you apply a software update, this overwrites the modification and takes the phone back to its original locked state. If you get an unlock code from the network this properly unlocks it to do as you wish so I think you're out of luck unless you can go back to the same place that unlocked it and ask them to do it again but don't mention the software update.

Your phones CID was updated,now it is inpossible to unlock the latest CID,you have to wait few months for unlocking,guys are working on this... Many times said-updating unlocked phone is not the best way!
