Please Login to Remove!

Hi i'm fairly new to this. I have a 8700g which i'd like unlocked. I've purchased a unlock code already...just the next step...i need a valid sim card which i have...from another provider
Does it matter which sim card i stick in the 8700g?
thanks

If you have unlocked it, another carrier's SIM card should do it. Pop it in and see--good luck.
