Hello All, i have a question
I bought this cellie when i was overseas in Nairobi (Kenya, Africa) , i had a sim card for it for safaricom that i had purchased from the airport. However since im back in the states i cant use the phone with the previous sim, i bought another sim card for the phone, but it keeps giving me SIM REJECTED. Can i even use another sim with this phone or am i doom'd with a phone that i can never use?

You can unlock it for free. You can use this to calculate the unlock codes:
Just follow the instructions step by step.
But be careful, you only got 5 tries. After that you need to leave the phone to a unlock shop to get it unlocked.

I just tried 3 of the codes, and they didnt work. They dont have kenya listed on most unlocking websites.
Sorry if this question seems a bit silly, but where are unlock shops usually located, like just random ppl?

Where i live, there is unlock shops all over. They take maybe 50 $ for it. You could just walk in to the nearest cell phone distributer and ask
What is the operator name in Kenya that the phone is locked to?
