    Hello all - please help if you are able.

    I am trying to enable an 8300 which was on Orange UK so that it can go on Three UK.

    I received MEP code which worked fine and all locks are showing as Inactive.

    However with the new SIM card it just shows SOS and does not connect.

    Is this all a vain hope? Are they incompatible? Wrong frequency etc?

    the 8300 is 2G gsm and I believe 3 UK supports 3G . Not compatible.

    further research and I realise how right you are. I'm not used to service providers who don't have 2G fallback. How weird

    Thanks. Yes some carriers just started with 3G as invested in a faster infrastructure
