Re: country code

Your Canadian provider locked the phone, so that you may only use their SIM-cards in your phone. This is common practice. Consult your old provider for the unlocking code and instructions, the other solution is to take your phone to a proffesional unlocker and have him unlock the phone for you. Only problem with that is that the warranty on your phone might be void after doing that.

I have an unlocked Samsung T309 which was bought in the US and which I am trying to use in India. I have an Airtel SIM card but the T309 phone somehow keeps searching for the network. Are there any...

No, you don't need any specific setting if your phone already unlocked. Are you sure your phone already unlocked? If not you need to unlock it first using samsung t309 network unlock code and your phone will accept your airtel sim card after you put samsung unlock code in that phone.

Samsung wave s8500 network problem it always shows search sign where it should show the networks network comes only on terrece - can even make calls that time it detects sim always - no problem in that...

I think your phone still locked for canada network, you need to unlock it before you can use that in India. You will need samsung wave s8500 unlock code for your canada network sim to unlock your phone and you can get that code from your network provider or you can buy from third party sites. After you get samsung unlock code, insert that code in your phone then you can use your India sim card. Good luck and have a try!

Please help i wanna unlock my n73

You're probably trying to use a SIM card from a network not supported by the country you're in.
Some networks don't have a roaming agreement between two or more networks service providers to enable the users of one service provider to use their services.

Purchase a new SIM card from a popular network in that country. Ask them to unlock your phone at the same time, because it might be locked on the original network, like Orange, Vodafone, t-mobile etc...
