Default difficulty with unlocking blackberry bold

Please Login to Remove!

Good morning.

I purchases unlock code for refurbished AT&T blackberry bold. Entered the code according to the instruction.
Also checked the status from options > advanced options >SIM card, enter mepd, it shows "disabled" for each items there, which indicates successful unlocking.

However, when I insert my T-mobile prepaid sim card (a working card on my T-mobile phone), I got SOS icon, no signal. The same T-mobile sim card is working on another unlocked blackberry 8800, however.

Would appreciate if you can advise.
Thanks a lot

Make sure you have your wireless network on with the Manage Connections icon (looks like an antenna). Sometimes after unlocking a device I have noticed this gets shut off and needs to be turned back on manually. You might also need to do another battery pull if for some strange reason the SIM card isn't being recognized. Double check that your BB is truly unlocked: How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? - BlackBerryFAQ
Too many of these cheap-o unlocking services are scams or just really careless about making sure you have the right code.
