Hi all. I have a friend who bought a phone on TradeMe and when he tried his Vodafone sim phone came up with 'SIM registration failed', same thing with a brand new Vodafone sim. We tried his sim on another phone and it works fine. I'm suspecting that the phone is blacklisted. It gets the signal for a split second then it comes up with that error. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
