Did you buy the BB new or used from someone else?

Sounds to me like it is used.

It's possible that an older SIM card won't work in the newer phones and Blackberries. You might need to get a new one from a T-Mobile dealer. Should be free. Also, consider resetting the Blackberry. That should wipe any leftover corporate IT security stuff that may be lingering behind the scenes.

I don't think that's it. I have an ancient Voicestream card and it works fine in my BB.

txparadise - exactly what message are you getting? Is it a SIM card unlock message?

I've got an old SIM from the Voicestream days too. I've been wondering how long it'll be before the gold contacts are too scratched for it to read.
