Samsung Galaxy S II :: Can't Use It On Orange UK After Unlocking From 3 Network
Jun 12, 2011
I just rooted and unlocked a SG2 that was on the 3 network. I ran Galaxy S2 SIM Unlock after rooting using ODIN etc - I put in the unlock code and it said unlock successful. After putting in my Orange SIM and switching on, I am getting the network error symbol and am unable to make calls. (Interestingly, I do get the Orange SIM Plus app icon on the phones desktop. Also, the phone still boots with the 3 logo - was expecting this to have disappeared completely!).
I'm in the UK and have a S2 that use to be on Orange but is now unlocked. What I'm looking for is just a factory ROM for the S2 to flash it so I can remove all the Orange bloat ware.

I wanted to update to ICS Android 4.0 on my Orange branded S2 NFC. I was told by Orange support to download Kies. I did, had a few problems getting the phone to connect to the software including a few driver crashes. After it finally connected, it offered me ICS which I accepted. But every time I have downloaded the update it then fails saying "Failed to run firmware upgrade. Unknown error occurred."
I have uninstalled kies and the driver from my PC (windows 7 home premium 32bit) and reinstalled to no effect. Turned off the phone, taken out the battery, turned off wi-fi and data.
If it wasn't for the fact the orange "signal boost" app has been quite useful in my dead zone of a flat I would root the phone and unbrand it and download the update off the net.
I am living in Toronto, Canada and bought the phone from a cellphone shop and paid the shopkeeper extra for unlocking the phone. Q-1.) Will my phone be locked again if i was to update it?Q-2.) How can i update my phones firmware to 2.3.4 without voiding warranty? or it is not possible?Q-3) Is there any way to know what is the unlock code that was used to unlock my phone so in case i update it and gets locked i can put the code myself without having to pay to have it unlocked?Phone Info:Model Number: GT-I9100MOS Version: 2.3.3Baseband Version: I9100MUGKG2Kernel Version: 126.96.36.199-I9100MUGKG2-CL371789dh130.yoo@SEP-48 #2Build Number: GINGERBREAD.UGKG2
It's impossible to register my 8707v on Orange Network. A message appears : "your terminal is already registered on another provider". I bought this BB as used and it comes from SFR network. I tried to call SFR but they are unable to do something.
I have updated my Nokia 5800 and ever since when I try to go on the internet via Orange it won't let me. I can't even use or set up Wi-fi. When I go into settings and connectivity there is no option to select or search for WLAN. When I try to add new access point it tells me that my network destination needs to be set first.Any ideas what I need to do please?
i just installed Jelly bean before 5 mins,after i rebooted my phone i put my PIN code and phone start well, but then i see this "sim network unlock pin"how can i fix it? i was using Icream sandwich before.do i need to install again ICS to fix it?
My wife just came back from overseas and now her phone will not detect our wireless network, just says it's "out of range", yet my phone connects fine. I have checked all the settings which are ok, reset the phone and the router to no avail.
IMEI can be seen,everything is fine, when plugged in my orange sim card it just said "mobile network not available". The signal strength is fine and can be seen. I tried an O2 sim card, a talktalk (vodafone) sim card and they both worked fine. both of my 2 orange sim cards didn't work on this phone, but they worked fine on my other 2 phones. latest update, just flashed orange stock rom KJ4, got the same problem.tried manually connect to orange, got notice that "unable to connect, try later".
some more detail:every time when I flashed a new rom, always a notice saying "can't access to "/system/csc/ORA/system/". Tried *#272*imei#, there was no optional CSC available.
I have tried reinstalling the frimware and all that did was lose my apps. Tried doing a different firmware and tried rooting all the same results. The phone is definitely unlocked and unblocked as while I was searching google I came across one of those secret codes to show the status of the locks and all 4 of the categories were unlocked. I have tried a batterry pull and tried cleaning the Sim card. Also just in case this helps when I g into Settings>Call>Additional Settings it says 'Network Or Sim card error'. However the Sim card is perfectly fine.
The network mode on my Samsung galaxy S5 device is always set at GSM only. When I try to change it to WCDMA only or GSM/WCDMA (auto mode) it changes back to GSM only. The area I am has 3G network and most devices I see have H but mine always shows as E no matter what I do. When browsing it takes a long time for pages to open because its always at E.
I have factory reset the device but still facing the same problem.
I have signal and I can make calls/send texts but the o2 icon on my main home page has disappeared, it's really irritating me lol!
My mate was mucking about with my phone earlier and changed the wallpaper to a pic from facebook so I'm thinking it maybe has something to do with that... I've been through the settings and can't find anything... been in the widgets to try and get it back cause I remember on my old samsung you could put it on the screen as a widget... but no luck!
I've turned it on and off but no luck, and I don't want to have to resort to restoring it to the factory settings cause I don't want to lose everything..
I mainly use my Galaxy S II to access my WLAN and rarely use the phone for telephone calls. Yet my pre-paid credit is constantly being eaten up?
I think the phone is set up to automatically select the best network. Normally this will be my WLAN,but I suppose,if I am in an area of the house with poor WLAN coverage,the mobile network is automatically selected?
I've bought a second hand UK iPhone 4s locked to O2 and I'm heading back to the United States in the morning. I need to unlock it to use my American sim, and wondered if I use the apple auth unlock system whether it' matters where in the world you are.
I get a poor signal indoors at home - on Orange and it's always been the case. I spoke to their customer services and was told to switch the phone from auto select for Network Mode to GSM only. My choices are GSM only, WCDMA only or Auto.
True, having done so, the signal strength seems better though not amazing but, ordinarily, I get then just a "G" for data. I found that switching to WCDMA only, data goes to 3G or even H and sometime H+ but I nearly always lose the standard signal.
I dont understand the difference between GSM and WCDMA nor whether the results I see when choosing each are to be expected or not. I'd welcome any information from those of you who know more about these things than I do.
I installed the lite'ning rom around 4 days ago but since yesterday I'm unable to activate data network mode? It's ticked under the settings and i've tried turning it on and off but it still doesn't come on. When I hold the power button it will say its activated but if I wait 30 seconds it switches to saying its deactivated? Is this a problem with the rom?
Am I right in thinking that the Data Network Mode access your data plan usage? Ie 500mb?When I activate this, it doesn't seem to allow me to connect to the net?Also is there a widget that allows me toggle this off and on?Doesn't it seem weird that Samsung hasn't give us a indicator like the wifi that this data network mode is ON? I could leave it on running without even knowing? Is there a good app which lets me see how much data I am using?
I can't make incoming/outgoing calls or send receive SMS on my phone (I get the 'Not Registered on Network' message). Interestingly there is about a 5 second window right after I turn on/off Airplane mode I can send/receive SMS and make a phonecall - the phonecall will last as long as I want, but when I hang up I'm back to square one!I have no data connectivity I can connect to WiFi etc.I have full reception i.e. full bars My phone is not blacklisted (I checked IMEI with network operator)Other SIM card won't work on my phone My SIM card works on another phone When I go into settings to select mobile network I am 'Unable to connect. Try later'i have reset the APN settings
Ever since getting my sg2, I have always had a problem with the 3g. My phone when it connects proceeds only to upload, showing only the green arrow pointing up. This happens randomly, and it happens across all the different platforms of network connection the sg2 has. The issue is incredibly annoying as my phone can't download data, meaning I cant access the internet. The issue when it happens does seem to correct itself after sometime and with me fiddling around with it, but I am yet to find a permanent solution to fix the problem. My friend recommended I turn of data and turn it back on, which does work but is very hit and miss, and the issue can still very much be present when I turn data back on. The only solution which seems to work 100% of the time is turning the phone off and on again, however this is pointlessly annoying and quite a nuisance.
I got a Samsung Galaxy S II last week for the first time, and I noticed something odd. I can connect to my home secured Wi-Fi network just fine using the network credentials, but I can't seem to use free Wi-Fi networks like McDonalds for example when I am out and about...
The phone says that I have connected, but complains that I have no network connection at those times.
i am recently on a blackberry torch9800 locked to vodafone i am wishing to unlock it but cant get past the screen which has your imei num on it as i have read a few sites that you needto get to the screen were it shows were your sim card is how to do this as i have my imei num and mymep id num
I am in the process of transferring between networks. My old network (t-mobile) have cancelled my account and I have received my new sim card from my new network (3). The trouble is my phone will not accept my new sim, as i require a subsidy pin to unlock my t-mobile blackberry. I have contacted them, but as the account is now cancelled they can no longer give me the required pin.Instead, they asked me to contact blackberry directly to get the phone unlocked.
My Samsung GS2 runnig on 2.3.4 has developed a problem. It keeps loosing Wifi connection at home. It connects then disconnects. It is becoming frustrating and annoying. I have uninstalled all apps and still no solution. I know others on here have had similar problems has a solution been found. I have switched the Wifi sleep to never. I have installed wifi fix which resolves it temporarily but then the connection falls off.
