Sim unlock screen/prompt

Recommended Posts

When I got the phone I put in my giffgaff sim and it asked for the sim unlock code.

As I did not have the code yet I hit ignore so I could install CM9.

Now I have the code I put in the giffgaff sim but no code prompt appears and the phone just boots up with no service.

I have also tried other networks' sims but it's still the same.

There was a thread with the same problem on the giffgaff forums which was solved by rebooting with no sim then with the giffgaff sim

I have tried this but no luck

My giffgaff sim is fully activated and working.

Is there a way of forcing the sim unlock code entry screen to appear?

Hi...have you tried

Settings/Location and security/Set up SIM card lock...

Lock SIM card should be checked....require PIN to use phone!!

That's two different things. You can only unlock on a stock rom. Nandroid backup, flash stock rom, unlock then Nandroid restore.
