    Which Country are you in? Which network are you on?

    By my knowledge your phone is locked to O2 UK. You can bypass this with a rebel sim, but webos 1.4.1 doesn't work out of the box with rebel sim.

    Please check out the rebel sim site here!

    You can also try the new unlocking possibility here
    And here is howto for bypassing carrier activation if you unlock your phone!

    Notice in Bold ? You have flashed GSM phone with CDMA firmware.

    Both are completely different technologies used by different companies. Their firmware is tailor made to suit their network's frequency bands.

    You need to find and install O2 firmware. If phone has O2 firmware, it will accept any O2 sim card for activation. If if is not accepting O2 sims then,

    1. Phone is faulty and needs to be replaced
    2. Have you got it from ebay ?? The dodgy seller has told you its on O2 while its on some other network and wants to get rid of it himself ?
    3. Lastly, is your O2 sim having Web bolt on enabled ? Does it have enough balance if on pay as you go ? If you have put a contract sim, does it have internet enabled by O2 ?
