Issue With Replacement SIM

Hello,

I recently got a new Samsung S4 Mini and had a replacement SIM sent out - I called to get this activated today - however, on the new phone, I get a screen "SIM network unlock PIN" - I've tried the default, which I believe is 7890 - however, that just gives an unsuccessful message. I've tried following some online help suggesting typing in *#0011#, etc, which works up to a point, but it doesn't show the expected UMTS menu.

Can anyone suggest anything please?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Re: Issue With Replacement SIM

Is the phone new from a phone shop or new to you (second hand) as you usually see that message when the Samsung is sim locked to a network & you insert a different sim. 

I take it that you're following the instructions from here: http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-sim-unlock-samsung-galaxy-s4-gt-i9505-for-free/
