Please help me

I bought an N95 in London about a year ago. T-mobile UK told me the phone was not locked and that I could use it in back in the US. Well, the phone is locked so I couldn't use it with my US sim card. I payed for the unlock codes from a website online but none of them worked, and after five tries, the phone hard locks, and no longer gives you that option. So, I bought a turbo unlock sim card that allowed my phone to work for the first time in a year. However, when I updated the firmware to the 31.0.017 version that is current, I no longer can recieve a signal from my network. The sim is working because I am not getting the "invalid sim card" message. But I can't get coverage. It worked perfect until I did the update. Please help. Can I maybe restore the original version of firmware or something.

check your network settings
go menu>tools>settings>phone>network>
should be:
Dual mode
Automatic

however if it's not picking up your network on auto,
set it to manual,
it will scan for networks,
when it's done select your network

Smile Product Code?

After a Firmwareupdate , before reinstalling personal data , you can do a Hardreset first . The idea is getting rid of all old software and settings . For a hard reset or VDG see my post here :
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=81021

Underneath the battery , printed on the sticker , you can find your productcode . Compare it to the codes in the "sticky" here :
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=58225
When it is the T-Mobile branded code , your phone still will have the T-Mobile software on it .
Two things to consider :
1) Just contact T-Mobile (UK) for the unlockcode .
2) and/or Reflash ; Find instructions in an E90 thread here :
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=64399

When you only change product code , the T-Mobile goodies will disappear , but also Warranty will be void and the lock will be still on .
Use an European code , as the device has Euro specifications .
