If Voda blacklisted the IMEI then no sim will work in it... Someone else may clarify this.
- Telstra HTC Touch Pro2 - Energy ROM WM6.5.5 20 Oct/Cyanogen Mod Froyo 2.2 - R.I.P - AT&T Galaxy S Captivate 16GB on XT (now with brother) - Samsung Galaxy S2 on XT- Runs ICS 4.0.3 Resurrection Remix 9.2 - Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free' - What's next??? S3?
johnr would be the man to confirm how good the blacklisting is. I know that a phone from the UK was ok on 2 degrees when we tried it, but that was not roaming onto VF. Didnt have a VF sim to try that out.
Hi Ham, yes unfortunately the phone will continue to work with 2D and XT SIM’s as the IMEI is the unique Device ID and not related to the SIM.
The Device is black listed in the VF EIR (Equipment Identity Register), not sure about 2D but TNZ has its own separate EIR which won’t have the IMEI listed so if an XT SIM was loaded it would connect and work as normal.
In the future I hope TNZ aims to link / share EIR’s with VF, 2D, plus the worldwide Central EIR to ensure any device stolen on any network will not work.
Agreed, at the moment none of the Telco's share locked out IMEI's whish they would, I know that if it is locked on telecom all they have to do is insert VF sim and they are away. I see that a lot of phones now have remote lock, you send it a text with a security phrase and it locks phone, sim and memory card. your personal security code is required to unlock it and the only way around it is the maunfacturer to reset the lock code. I have set this up on my phone as well as a few friends.
