i just bought a Blackberry 8320 on ebay.
It's a blackberry from t-mobile from Los Angeles. The seller told me the phone is unlocked and tried the phone with other simcards and it worked!
I live in the netherlands (Europe) and i'm using a Vodafone simcard, without any blackberry service. (that's not a problem for me , because i have Wifi ). The first thing i want to do is to use my blackberry! But i can't use the phone.
my phone is connecting with my Wifi network in my house , but is saying INVALID SIMCARD , and i can only make emergency calls. Here not many people are using so they don't no exactly what is going on.. but
i called a couple providers and they told me that blackberry had as double lock problem. Maybe the phone is unlocked, But the t-mobile provider still locks the phone. SO they told me to call with the american t-mobile provider and ask them for the unlock code. that's the only problem they told me and then after that i have to give that unlock number to my provider in the nehterlands. But sometimes they only give the unlock code if the phone is more that a year old, but the phone is more that a year old , so that's not the problem.
i really want to use my phone in the netherlands, but they don't no what to do.
what do i need to do? I saw on a other website that more people have this problem , but they didn't gave a solution....
which staps do i have to make?
ANY HELP IS WELCOME!!! I'M CONFUSED
