| | 7510 to 7100i Upgrade Problems - Help!
Please Login to Remove!
I have had my Nextel 7510 for a little over a year. I decided to upgrade to a 7100i, but I did not want to lock into a new contract. So I found a lightly used one on Ebay. I thought I could just swap Sim cards, but when I did that I get "Sim Card Error" and the network only goes to nxTL. After an exhaustive search on this forum, I found a post that said the 32K card from the 7510 will not work in the 7100i. So I need a little help.
The phone came with a Sim, but it is programmed to the guy I bought it from. Potentially more of a problem for him since I was getting his e-mail...luckily I am an honest person and did a device reset. Now it is back to new, except his # is still on the Sim. From the searching I have done I can't change this, so I am not sure what to do.
Do I buy a new Sim card? If I do, does Nextel have to program it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
