Hi
I've followed the instructions.

Cert.cab is on the phone the other two files on the PC.

When I run SPVServices a window pops up saying All OK, Rapi init was successful.

I then go to SimLock tool on the left, enter AGREE and click ok.

I get a message saying Unknown error -2147467259 in read operation.

I've had a look at the various posts on this but can't find the fix.

Any help appreciated!

so long as the fault is nothing to do with you unlocking it, it is none of their business.

They won't even know you have unlocked in my experience.

When I spoke to them about unlocking my own phone they told me it was perfectly ok so don't worry!

well the first step is to ring virgin, and they can give you advice, and they may also give you some settings which will help you.

if your worried about playing with the registry check out this thread

thanks for responding so quickly.
after i have changed these values when i try and run cert.cab i get a message reading:
installation failed. the program or setting cannot be installed because it is not digitally signed with a trusted certificate.
what should i do?
many thanks
tim.

Hi,
have done a hard reset and reg editor now does its job. i think if you've been messing around with unlocking techniques a hard reset before trying this specifi technique is essential. also, unlplug any cables to hard reset.
however:
cert.cab now installs perfectlty, but when i try nd run spvservices.exe i get a message saying that it is not a valid windows ce application.
please somebody save me from the brink on a mental breakdown...
thanks

I'm having trouble with this :)

Got my PAYG C550 yesterday but it wouldn't get a signal - phoned up Orange today who said that the blacklist hadn't been removed so they did that for me and I could get it to work with the Orange sim.

Did the unlock procedure OK, my o2 sim no longer gives the "invalid sim" message, nor asks me for an unlock code. However, it acts like it is still blacklisted, never acquiring a signal and showing "Denied, searching" on the screen like it first did with the Orange sim.

I phoned Orange again to double-check the IMEI and they confirmed that the phone wasn't blacklisted. I guess my next call will be to O2 to get them to check it - but Orange said that there is just one national blacklist register now?! This is really annoying!

I used the registry tweak and then the program and it unlocked it. i put in my virgin mobile sim card and it all loads fine. but when i try to make a call it beeps 3 times and then hangs up. also when i call it from my landline it said "calls are not currently being connected to this number" 2 times

is this because i did something wrong unlocking it or is it a problem with virgin mobile?
