This is not correct. Please check your facts before posting.

The real problem is that the device is from the original AT&T Wireless, and the SIM card you have is from the new at&t Mobility, previously known as Cingular Wireless. AT&T Wireless phones cannot accept Cingular or at&t SIM cards. As such, you will need to get the device unlocked to use a SIM card from the current at&t.

To SIM unlock the device, you may:

- ask AT&T to unlock it for you. Note that AT&T may not have access to the original AT&T unlock codes
- buy an unlock code from a third party. The unlock code is a unique number and only works for your device. I can provide the unlock code for $15. Contact me with the IMEI of your device (billyng@teczilla.com) if you are interested.

Thank you for the info but I sent the phone back the the seller. My wifes best friend has a BB Pearl 8100 Team Mobile. If you can unlock that phone so I can use it with my at&t 3g sim card I will diffinatly pay the 15.00. When and if i start using the phone, I know it has to have a data plan. But do you use airtime just making and taking calls,or recieving and sending messages. I phone is from work it has s data plan but not allowed to use it.+6

Yes, it will work.

Also, the carrier is T-Mobile, not "Team Mobile"

I can provide the unlock code for $25 (any T-Mobile phone). Contact me with the IMEI of your device (billyng@teczilla.com) if you are interested.

The 7280 isn't a T-Mobile phone. READ.

dc/dc, if you read more carefully, garza5 asked "Can you unlock a BB Pearl 8100 Team Mobile to use with at&t 3g sim card".

Well, you didn't quote that post when you posted, so I assumed you were talking about his original post with the 7280.
