Default T Mobile Sim Card Error

Please Login to Remove!

I just moved to the United States and switched to tmobile and got my sim card today. I bought my BB unlocked and it is actually a Tmobile. I inserted the sim card and it says initialization failed above the date and time. Do I need to set something up on my BB?

Yeah, well I bought it on ebay couple years ago unlocked and took it to my country! used it for two years there and now that Im in the US got the tmobile plan and its not working! I did the master reset, got a different sim card and nothing. Is it possible to lock a blackberry after it was unlocked?.

Once unlocked it should stay unlocked.
