Apparently, there are 3 ways to go about unlocking a handset. An unlock code is needed in each case. Since you already have your phone, you only have 2 options. One is to find a website that can give you an unlock code, and the other way is to contact your carrier (O2) and ask them for an unlock code. How long have you been with O2?

Here are some links that try and explain how to do it:

How long have you been with O2? Are you a long-time customer? Under what type of contract did you buy the phone? Pay-as-you-go? 2-3 year contract?

Check out this link and see if you can unlock your phone in this manner: https://www.o2.co.uk/apps/help/help?qid=1&q1=2&route=unlocking&case=Handset%20Unlocking%20Form

I would recommend calling O2 customer service and explaining your problem, and asking if they can give you an unlock code for your phone. If you have been an O2 customer for awhile, it may work. If they won't give you an unlock code, try searching Google for an unlock code.

Also, MAKE SURE to check out this link from XDA, where they talk about unlocking it.

It is very challenging to help you when it is hard to understand what you are saying, so spelling a bit better would be a big help. Are you saying that you can connect to a non-O2 network, but that when you change networks, you lose connection? I'm not very familiar with this whole unlocking subject, or how exactly a rebel sim works.

If I were you, I would make a post on the forum in my previous post, as well as in XDA-Developers, as they will have more people experienced on that topic.

hello dear,

i mean to say that when i travel from home to my office which is near about 35km from my place i loose the network on my way.
then if . i put the sim in a 2g phone and allow the network signals to come and then put the sim again in dell streak, the network comes again.
This thing is mentioned on the rebelsim website in user reviews.
