    I have a World Edition 8830 through Verizon. I got it unlocked and used it in Greece with a local SIM card. The next time I went there, after a year, I bought a new card but I could not call or receive calls or messages. The same happened in Spain. The cards I tried to use worked for other phones.
    In SIM Card, under network, it says Inactive.
    Any thoughts? Thanks.
