I managed to sim unlock mine and placed a glode sim card on it. It works if you're using it to make calls. I tried setting-up the GPRS settings manually for Globe but it won't work. Globe customer service do not know how to set it up either. Hi tech na raw kasi sila na OTA na raw ang pag set-up sa mga phones ngayon using "GO (CP Model)" then send to 2951. Kaso, the SAP's settings is not on their computers' database.

So ang ending, still using the Smart SIM on my SAP. The only thing good about unlocking the sim lock of the phone is in case walang signal ang smart sa isang lugar pero globe meron, you could just fit in the globe sim to make a call. Other than that is nada!

My two cents worth.

I can give you the settings for Globe GPRS to allow you to surf. However, it only works with a post paid line.

Try: Under Settings,Click on Menu. Choose Edit connections then Choose GPRS Connections. Make a name for the Globe GPRS connection you are about to make.

Connects to: The Internet

Access point: internet.globe.com.ph

User name: Leave blank

Password: Leave blank

Primary DNS: 0.0.0.0

Secondary DNS: 0.0.0.0

IP address: 203.127.225.11

Press Done.

Let me know if it works for you.

Good Day!

@arvmd -check the other thread that discussed this topic...HOW TO SIM UNLOCK....or pm and ask BizMaster who was able to unlock his phone...maybe you guys could meet and help arvmd.

I only posted the procedure but I personally didnt try to unlock my phone yet though I saw my mates just followed the procedure and were successful in unlocking their phone

to arvmd:

i also followed the procedure at lifeetc.org and was successful. are you sure you follow the procedure step by step?

based on info from the net, it will work for bootloader 0.91 to 0.98

Tnx DinoAlbert and Anjo, I finally found the solution to my problem and was able to unlock my phone, its true that SPV unlock program only works on XP and i think windows 2000, but not with ME, or 98. I can use my phone now with globe although I still cant send MMS or use the GPRS.

I have "hard resetted" already five (5) tanagers and that's includes mine.

> will it restore your phone to its original settings? i mean will it lock the phone to smart again?

Yes, it will restore to its original settings (out-of-the-box settings), but you will loose your messages and contacts on the phone. Better backup it first.

> will it lock the phone to smart again?

Although I have not tried "SIM unlock" my phone, I think you need to "SIM unlock" it again after the hard reset. :?
