Need your help.
I have just unlocked my Telus Storm 2 to use with FIDO. Right now everything seems to be working fine. However, I am not sure if the phone unlocked correctly.
Now I have both the FIDO & Telus numbers active on the phone at the same time. When I choose 'GSM' the FIDO number get activated & on choosing '1XEV' the Telus number gets activated. I do not have a data plan on the FIDO number yet; will get a FIDO data plan once I cancel my 1 month Telus activation. On choosing 'GSM', I get lower case 'edge' & not 'EDGE'. Is this because I do not have a data plan on FIDO? The Wi-Fi is working fine on both.
At the time of switching off the phone it still shows the Telus logo even when the FIDO SIM is active. When I do a battery pull with the FIDO SIM active the Browser icon disappears when it switches back on. However, if I then turn on 'I XEV' in the mobile network connections I get the Browser back & it stays there even if I switch back to GSM on FIDO.
Is this normal or is there something wrong with the unlock? My concern is whether things will work once I have the Telus number disconnected.

5. Hit menu select show keyboard
6. Enter mepd (you will not be able to see the typed info)
7. Enter the letters: mep2
8. Now it will say enter network mep code
