SIM Card Recognition Problem
I have a problem and after weeks of trawling the web and forums have not found a solution:
I have rooted HTC Desire formerly with Orange Contact but now unlocked; new sim-only contract with Vodafone. Phone still receives and logs on to Orange network and can do a network search within settings.
However it will not recognise Vodafone SIM; have also tried 3 and Virgin SIMs which are also unrecognised. These alternative SIMs work OK in other phones.
Have tried several ROMs but same on all.
Both Orange and Vodafone don't want to know.
Unlocking code was officially provided by Orange.
In recovery mode list of 4 items includes "SIMLOCK" in blue; could this be significant.
I'm out of options. Can anyone help?
