HI
A restriction code is numeric code (password) that prevents a user from accessing certain technical settings of a phone. It is specifically designed to prevent a phone from being reprogrammed to work with a different carrier (service provider).
This is what is usually meant when a phone is referred to as "locked". There are also "unlocked" phones that can be reprogrammed to work with a different carrier.
The reason for this system is the way phones are often sold. Many phones are sold below cost, (at a loss to the carrier,) with the expectation that the money will be recouped in the cost of the monthly service plan. The up-front loss that is later recouped is called a Subsidy.
For this to work financially for the carrier, the user must not buy the phone and then use it with a different carrier. The MSL makes that nearly impossible.
Unlocked phones are ususally much more expensive than locked phones, because there is no subsidy to offset the cost.
You should ask the operator for the restriction code

Does it read your US simcard?
it is most probably a network setting. "No Service" means it cannot pick up a signal , check your network setting so that they are in american signal frequancy . Not shure what yor frequancy is because im South African.

My orange phone is not working in south africa


Your mobile is locked with network provider.So whenever you insert a sim, your mobile displays the message like "Invalid SIM" .After unlocking you can use it any network in your mobile. This unlocking can be done through codes. I found a free unlocking service at Unlocking4free.com .If your mobile model is listed here, you can unlock your mobile easily.

I think that you will need to purchase another sim card for this dongle as you will not be able to pick up the south african vodafone internet from the UK
make sure the dongle is not locked to vodafone if you want to use another network
hope this helps

I bought a Samsung E250 in the Uk and when I insert my South African sim card in it says that the network is locked.


Hi,

Yes. The cellphone in UK is only meant for Certain Service Providers. In Order to Use it for South African SIM, you need ti Unlock the Code.There would be a Couple of Options :-

1. Contact the Original Service Provider and Ask them the Unlock Code.

Comment - They might not Offer as this phone would be under Contract. Why would they allow some other Provider to use it on their Network's SIM.

2. There are Certain websites that Keeps a Track of all these Details.These would Offer you Unlock Codes.

Comment - Not 100% Guaranteed.

3.Use Hardware or Re-flashing.

Comment - This could be done by only Few people who have the Firmware available,

Try one Trick, if that would work :-

1. Insert unaccepted sim to phone.

2. Input *2767*3855# and phone will reboot and will be temporarily unlocked.

3. Input *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

4. Input #7465625*638*00000000#

5. Input *#7465625# to check the locks.


Out of these, you could try 2nd Option. The list of Websites ( Again i have no Comments on these Sites ) i came across are :-


http://www.mobileunlocked.com/Samsung/E250
http://www.instant-unlock.co.uk

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
