Exclamation SIM Card Rejected

Please Login to Remove!

Ive put in the original SIM Card used for the phone my friend gave me because mine was saying 'Invalid SIM Card'.
But when I put this SIM Card in it says 'SIM Card Rejected'

What does this mean?

Also, I don't understand much about unlocking a phone because I think that's what I need to do.
Does it cost to get it unlocked?
Do you not get an unlock code with the phone in the box?

If anyone can help me out, please do

You are probally using his sim card that he cancelled. An unlocked phone means you can put just about any sim card in it from any carrier and the phone will work, as long as the sim card is active on the network. To unlock the phone you need to get the unlock code from the carrier. As for a cost, tmo won't charge as long as you have been a customer for at least 90 days, AT@T, I have no idea. They provide instructions on how to unlock the phone
