Hi I need help! I have a Nokia 6225 which will not recognise or find the Telecom network. Its an 027 prepay. It used to before I took it to a Telecom Dealer to be reprogrammed (I got a sanyo 5600 and moved my account number to the sanyo, and put the nokia on prepay for my partner) After I saw the dealer they said wait and it should find the network in a few hours??!?!?! Well it never has so I have a 6225 which is pretty much useless. Does anyone know how I can check whats up with it? I know how to reprogramme NAM (MIN and MDN) and they are correct, Telecom says they have the right ESN etc in their system, so what the dealer did I do not know. I went back to them and they said they couldn't do anything the b*st**ds. I'm wondering if the SID is wrong or maybe the CDMA/AMPS settings are mucked up? Also, the SPC that Telecom gave me over the phone to try to reprogramme would not be accepted - it kept saying code error....
Any ideas? Or can anyone point me to someone who knows what they are doing that I can physically take the phone to be reset and reprogrammed or whatever it needs? I live in central Auckland.

if the spc doesnt work id say the phone has been -completely- reset including operator settings. If the dealer did this, you would have a valid claim in the small claims court.

The phone is virtually junk now, unless Telegistics or MFR can reflash it for you I suppose.

Seen this many times before, the aerial has become disconnected from the main board, well that’s my understanding. You can pay to get it fixed but for that phone, one must ask is it worth it. $55 min assessment free plus repair charges (approx $90 all up) but you run the risk of Telegistics saying the unit is BER (Beyond Economical Repair).


Unlikely the dealer has done anything to cause such a problem.

Cheers
