I'll look at the code and report back, I've been on nights so spent all morning asleep! I suspect maybe a fault with the hu then or maybe as stated 2g sim only.

The car is an Exclusive on a 2007 plate though
Mine's fitted with (the dreadfully retarded) RT3; I'm using a Giffgaff 3G SIM successfully...

e3steve and Norman:

In case my earlier post was not clear: It's not about the SIM being from a 3G provider - it's about whether the SIM works with old 2G equipment or not.

I also use a SIM from a 3G provider which just happens to support also old 2G equipment such as the built-in phone in my 2006 C6.

All I wanted to point out was that apparently not all 3G SIM cards are also supporting old 2G equipment.

Can you 'turn on/off' phone in lexia?

Also if you hold down the green phone for a while you get a cheat code entry screen. Wtf is that all about?!?

Cheat code, no idea, will look tomorrow.

No, you can't turn it off in Lexia, but I'm not sure about reconfiguring it. My Lexia is down at the moment so I can't check

This page has a few of the cheat codes that have been worked out. Some of them look like they have the potential to mess things up quite badly, so take care if you're tempted to try any!
