Hi. I did not get anywhere at all with this phone. I am going to try and reflash it with rogers vsm files [thru MFI multiloader]. So pretty much 'rebranding' it to Rogers, in hopes that it triggers something in the phone that will make it work with my sim. ***THE 3040 SIM card DOES NOT work in this phone!***
I had a buddy come by to purchase the phone, since i read almost everywhere that the old 3040 sims from Rogers dating 3-4 years back work flawlessly, well it doesn't.
Best of luck, try debranding yours, this too is another thing i read almost everywhere that will 'fix' the phone and work with all sims. I guess not; in my case.
