Is it properly activated with your carrier?

Are you sure that it is unlocked?

Of course.
If the SIM isn't activated it cannot be used till it is activated.

Hello, I have one issue also after unlocking the 8900 device

Now when I install APP WORLD I get a message that it is not available in my country, but I know it is, I had it before

Anyone?! Maybe it is only to the version of device software?
