Yep it was a sim issue (nothing a light adhesive wouldn't solve), the second sim issue is that you can't save mcc and mnc info. I wouldn't recommend the turbosim type things either, but if you have a phone like this and unlock codes won't work it's really the only remaining option. Getting it from Verizon isn't an option, I was informed I would have to be a customer and have had the phone on their network for 6 months or more.
I can now confirm that the info on this thread is 100% effective and working. It just takes some patience and careful instruction following.
i think you need to be a verizon customer in good standing for 6+ months. I dont think the device needs to be on it for the 6 months though. i could be wrong. I've been with vzw for 10 years, and my D2G wasnt currently on their network when i unlocked it, though it had been for 1 year a while ago.
i'm glad you got it working.
