The Subsidy Lock is just another way of saying SIM lock. The phone is subsidised therfore it is locked hence Subsidy Lock!

Now Vodafone do 2 levels of locking in their pay as you go phones. Not only is the phone locked to the network, in this case Vodafone but it is also locked to a particular tarrif as well. Vodafone are the only company employing 2 levels of Sim locks at the moment.

The solutions are to pay Vodafone to get it unlocked which is about £15 - £20. Pay someone else to unlock it for you £10 or less.

Now if you have a Samsung V200 then you wont need to pay anyone to unlock it becasue you can do it just by some key pressesI'm in the military and was just sent to Italy.  I - biggrin.gif

The OS is only looking for that single providers Sim Card and does not understand the signal from the other sim card.

Subsidy password for w377 motorola


Request for subsidy password means the phone is locked to one particular firm eg Virgin or 02, and you've put a different brand of SIM in it.

Subsidy Password is the same as an Unlock Code.

Suggest you either put a SIM in the phone that's the same phone company as the original and therefore works with a locked phone, or request an unlock code from teh original service provider, or try using 84512461 as a Subsidy Code.
