I too have the similar problem, I bought the phone from bestbuy without contract, bring it back to indonesia, swap the indonesia sim card, purchase the unlock code (there are 2 codes btw) from ebay, tried 2 codes, no luck, its says network unlock request unsuccessful...hopes someone out there with a kind soul, can help me out too
Has anyone traveled to Europe for example with a rooted Droid 2 Global and tried if the Data (GSM) works? Before I do this, would like to know if my data will still work on other systems.
i have a problem with unlocking mine. i have a foreign sim that i tested on another phone and it works.
i inserted the sim, called verizon and they gave me 2 unlock codes to try, neither of which works. they indicated there may be something wrong with the device, but before i head back to the store, i'd like to know if rooting may interfere with this functionality at all ?
i tried both codes twice (2 times each). if there is a problem with the hardware, then i must unroot before i go back to the store.
wondering if anyone else has run into this or if my situation is a first ?
the rep i called said they only have 2 codes per device.
There is a thread over at XDA with few users who also couldn't unlock theirs. You are the first one I hear who wasn't able to unlock it with "official" codes provided by Verizon. Really strage!
anyway, i requested they obtain a new lock code, hopefully it will work.
the foreign sim i have has a slightly different printed board arrangement than the one that comes with the phone (4 contact rows, as opposed to 3), but i don't think that makes a difference.
i know the card works fine in my GSM phone and registers on cingular ....
last resort would be to swap out the phone .... maybe there's a defective batch out there
Worked like a charm. Though, I had a little set back when rooting the phone after installing. I snooped around and learnt that I had to restart the phone before rooting for the first time. I did and it was all well. Nice write up btw..
