Switched provide

Hi folks,

I had the t-mobile pulse for a year and now switched provider.

I contacted t-mobile for the unlock code which in my country they are obliged to give after

you contract period.

They replied though that my phone was already unlocked.

So I put in my simcard and yest it worked. Well.. partially.

It keeps showing the R from roaming in the antenne graphic and it refuses to make a data connection

even though the new providers' APN is correctly configured.

I read about CM Mod disabling the provider check, and though that maybe therefore it wasnt really unlocked

but just bypassed. I therefore installed a stock rom (Red Bull) and put in the chip again.

Same thing, it doesnt request network code and it does work for calling.

It does however show the same R of roaming and again refuses to make a data connection.

Why does this stupid phone still thinks its roaming? And is this why it doenst connect its data connection?

I did put in settings to roam data no matter what...

help appreciated!

I installed a stock rom, and it doesnt request a network password and my Telfort sim is working fine.

All except a data connection.

t -mobile also told me it was never locked ( I am in The Netherlands).

In the netherlands the T-mobile pulse is sold unlocked.

At least mine was :-)

I'm with tele2 now and when I insert their sim card into the pulse/Galaxy S the phone is automatically set to roaming.

This is probably because tele2 doesn't have their own infrastructure and are piggybacking on T-mobile's (3G)network.

Thus the roaming symbol....

PS: Had to configure the internet access point manually before I could connect to 3g.

Usually this info should be available at the provider's site

Worth double checking this.
