Argh ive been trying for the past 6 hours to sim unlock a K530i and now im really peesed off ! This afternoon i managed to knack the phone up bigtime after trying to flash it to a W660. I had to use the SE update tool to reflash the phone coz it wouldnt switch on, and it changed it to a CID53 from the original CID52 - nightmare. Anyway have since over the last 5 hours successfully (i think coz it boots different) flashed it to a W660 but now when i switch it on it comes up with 'insert correct sim'.
OK my question, i have read so so many texts tonight regarding CID53 and how to do it right, but i cant get to the stage of switching the phone on coz i dont have the original sim card. I got given the phone, which was on Three network, but my sim is O2. Do i need to get a Three sim card to sim-free the ferker or can i do it with my O2 sim ? The tutorials point to a stage where you switch the phone on and go into its menu... but i cant do that coz it keeps coming up with insert blooddy sim card !! Can i borrow someone elses Three sim if i got a m8 that has one maybe - IE the sim is not locked to the phone, any Three sim card will boot the phone ?
Argh im tired.. peeeed off... spent to many hours doing this without resolution... SOMEONE save me !
