as far as I am aware its not sim locked as it is a parrallel imported and worked fine when set up with vodafone. and i reset all the settings and have it on automatic scan for networks but the problem is when the 2 degree card is in the phone, whenyou turn it back on it doesn't load anything and just says please wait. i have stuck the sim in another phoneand it works fine.

Tried asking 2degree's as they should be able to trace it from their side.
