orange san fransisco question

14
Found 7th Jan 2011
ok so i got my san fransisco from argos today, got home put the sim in and it said no service, so then i thought well dont need the orange sim so unlocked it and put my pay monthly o2 sim in, still no service. Just phoned up orange cust services didnt mention that id unlocked it, and he said "oh your orange sim hasnt been activated so ill activate it now". My question is shouldnt my O2 sim still have worked and is it a problem with the phone? or does it need to be activated with an orange sim before you can unlock it?

Cheers

PS still no signal but can take up to 24hrs apparently

Try installing a custom rom or reinstalling the stock rom for your phone

yeah i was debating wether to instal a custom rom but if that doesnt fix it, ill be buggered if i want to take it back
are you saying you cant make/receive calls? or the fact that you cant surf the internet via wap?

cant do anything, no network signal whatsoever, iv tried selecting network myself and it comes up with "network busy"
yeah that is kinda weird especially if the sim works in another phone...it does yeah ?

reboot the phone? are you sure you unlocked it properly?

yeah both sims work in my gfs phone so its a problem with my handset, problem is argos will only send it off to be repaired so im gonna be with out a phone now
mine did that, i gave the sim a bit of a clean, then rebooted the phone about 3 times - seemed to work after that
