    I bought a a cellie at the flea market the other day. It's one that just needs you to slap in your sim card and you're good to go. Okay, did that.

    Now i get a prompt on the screen to enter a restriction code...wtf? What the hell is this all about? How can i get around this? Is there somewhere i can go to get the restriction code reset so i can use the damn thing or is it destined for use as a paperweight?

    Paperweight, nothing really good comes from Flea Markets. If so you got a special find.

    im not surprised it doesnt work...a flea market is the best place to get rid of a fucked phone.

    dont buy important stuff (phones, tv's etc) from the less reputible places.

    Tough luck lens same shit happened to me too. I was at a flea market, saw a phone i liked and i bought it. I asked the motherfucker if the shit was going to work he said yes.(yeah like the little shit was going to say no) I get home the same shit happens, enter a restriction code. It wasnt much money but like sneak said its best not to buy important shit from flea markets and shady places like that.

    you need to get it unlocked from its network. there might be some sites that show you how to do it, and retailer will chare you a few hundred to do it, look and ask around in china town, theres always a dodgy store that will do it for 30 bucks.
    or if your in london, old street station has a vendor that will do it for 10 squid. or in rome, i know this iraqi guy who will do it for 20 euros.
