Exclamation Unlocked TMOBILE 8800 but SIMS not recognized???

Please Login to Remove!

So my 8310 just started shutting down on me and even though the battery shows a full charge it still cuts off... I installed 4.5 because I was told that was the problem.... still nothing... So I forgot my brother left his Tmobile 8800 in my house before leaving to Florida and said I could use it... but I have AT&T so I got an unlock code from Unlock to talk...


Ran the steps and I can see that all the entries on my sim are Disabled... so I figured ok my phone is unlocked, so I then shut the phone down and popped my AT&T sim card in and BAMN NOTHING... it keeps saying invalid SIM...

So I figured DAMN my SIM must be shot, so I put it back in my old 8310 and to my surprise everything is their...and the phone works...


What the HELL is going on???? Can ANYONE help?

Clearly the 8800 is not unlocked.

Botched unlock or some issue with the 8800 is my guess. Does the 8800 work with a TMO SIM?

What do you mean by "everything"? You never mention anything missing from the 8310 in your post.
