As far as gsm not working have you changed network technology to GSM?
Thanks! My phone is now rebooted but it's still not reading my SIM card. It read my company which is GCI Wireless. And I did switch the network technology from global to GSM/UMTS. Now it says Insert SIM Card at the top of the phone and SOS on my bar of signals. Please help me! THANKS! ps. does it matter if the phone is unlocked or not? Will I definately get the phone working successfully?
