    Nokia 2190E looking to unlock mine or purchase a unlocked one

    Got a Nokia 2190E locked to fido, When i try putting in a fido sim card after a few seconds it says sim rejected, which i do not understand because the sim card is a fido simcard, i tried to unlock the phone and now i've locked it now i need a cable unlock, does someone know why it won't detect a brand new activated fido sim card? and possbily how to do a cable unlock? PLEASE don't tell me why don't i get another model, i really like my 2190 with the antenna, if anyone has a unlocked working one for sale i would gladly purchse it for a reasonable price.

    Thanks

    Hey Fido,
    i've already talked to fido they said we don't have the unlock for this exact phone, also i believe the unlock is through a data cable
    let me know you could unlock it, the phone is from fido

    What message are you getting when you put the New Fido Sim card in? Does it say "SIM CARD NOT ACCEPTED"? Having a similar issue with a "new" 2190 I just bought. I don't think it's an Unlock problem but a Sim Voltage problem. Mine accepts an ancient deactivated Fido sim from the 90's, but not a new sim.

    Oh, did it work? Where did you order it from? Fido didn't have any in store when I checked in person this morning.
