My daughters 2D sim FINALLY turned up today - she was pretty excited about gettin 5 bucks of free credit and paying only 9c per txt after her txt 2000 runs out (which seems to happen after only a week or so of it being renewed!0

She was pretty disappointed when her W910i presented a message ordering her to 'Insert Correct SIM Card'.

Ok Vodafone, I could understand you locking a phone on your network if it was subsidised, but this one wasn't (I bought it from Ingram Micro).  WTF?

Not sure if ringing Voda customer support would help - have tried for the last hour or so and it rings once and then disconnects the call.

Please 2D - hurry the f***k up with post-bill (and Blackberry services) so some of us can give VF the boot for once and for all.

Don't suppose anyone knows of a working NCK code generator for the W910i?

Thanks Vodafone for setting new levels of SUCK.

tried the sim in another phone?

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

joker97: tried the sim in another phone?

Hi, yep - works fine in other phones.  Phone is definitely locked onto the VF network.

Just 0800 VF UNLOCK, they are contracted by vodafone to unlock phones & they do it for free.

WubbleU: Does this page help?

Nice one, thanks - didn't find this on Voda's web site.  Will be interesting to see how difficult it is to get a (working) unlock code from Brightpoint.

Thanks again,
