I have a Straight talk bring your on phone sim card W/ATT phone my question is can I put the Straight Talk Sim card in ATT phone & use the $ I have on my ATT account to activate the Straight Talk sim


Yes you can,however you will need to contact AT&T first to get the Network Unlock Code Key. Once the phone is unlocked,call Straight talk so they can activate their service on your AT&T phone and you may use your sim card then.

Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phoneprovider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cellphone service provider.To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cellphone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with adifferent phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions:-http://www.fixya.com/support/r4049238-unlock_cell_phoneIf yourphone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides securitycodes for a small price.http://www.mobileunlockstore.com/?gclid=CKDb2_y2558CFSlJagodxBkDHwhttp://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/http://www.superunlockcodes.com

I bought a prepaid phone card for my lg cookie and it will not let me add it i called at&t and they did something and made my phone not have a number and now it says i do not have a sims card too what...


if you are using a sim card from a prepaid phone just bought, and then add it to another att branded phone, it will not work. if you use the sim card in the new prepaid phone, it will work. att locks the sims from working in other phones for 3 months from the factory. i did the same thing with a prepaid phone and a Q9, put the sim in the q9 and it said, no service. put the sim in the prepaid phone, it worked fine. my suggestion is to talk nice ot the att store employee, and they will give you a new sim.

let me know if your phone is doing something different.

I have locked HTC ARIA ATT. when i put non-att sim card to the phone, "SIM unlock code" screen doesn`t prompt..any ideas? :(


If your phone displays the 'SIM unlock code' then your phone is currently locked to particular network. You need to unlock to use it with other network.
There can be many ways to Unlock your phone. As far as i know unlocking by codes is the simple and safe way. I will suggest the website Unlock-zone.com which is doing good service and they were recommended highly in the cell phone forums.
I used them to unlock my cell phone. contacted them and within 30 mins i had my unlock code and my phone was unlocked.
Hope this helps.

Putting existing tmobile sim in atat pantech c740 phone says sim locked


ATT phones are locked to only work with ATT sim cards. You can call ATT for the subsidy unlock code, but since it sounds like you don't have service with them, they might not give it to you.
The other option is to do an online search for the subsidy unlock code your that model phone; there are sites that will give you the code for a fee.

I purchased an unlock phone from China the phone was to work on my network with ATT, however when I put my sim card in it, It says in sert sim card, I can get to the menu screens but it will not let me...


Your phone is locked to ATT network. Every company does that to restrict you from getting any other network. When you insert another sim of another network, your phone gets network lock.
You have to call the current network provider to unlock you from their network. Regards, Biswa.

Phone show no service


Call ATT and tell them you need your device unlocked..if it's not reading other sim cards...it's either one of two things...the phone isn't really unlocked or the sim card reader on the phone isn't working (ie: you have a useless phone!) Sorry to be so blunt. :-)

Unlocking my sony ericsson w580i


IF U ARE USING THE SAME CARRIER AS BEFORE (ATT FOR EXAMPLE) IT WONT NEED UNLOCKED. IF U WERE GIVEN A NEW SIM CARD FROM UR CARRIER WHEN THE NEW PHONE WAS BOUGHT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE SIM CARD. THE CARRIER ATTACHES THE SIM CARD NUMBER TO UR ACCOUNT. YOUR OLD ONE CAN BE USED ONLY TO ACCESS YOUR CONTACTS, BUT NOT TO MAKE CALLS.YOU CAN HOWEVER PUT THE OLD SIM CARD IN UR NEW PHONE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF TRANSFERRING UR CONTACTS, THEN REPLACE YOUR NEW SIM CARD INTO UR NEW PHONE

Samsung sgh-x426


I also have a x426 from 2003 and it wont work with the new ATT sim cards either, This is because of the Cingular/ATT merger which created a new network. The older original ATT phone must be unlocked to use a sim card from the new merged network. Try calling ATT Mobility customer service and request the subsidy unlock code. They are required to give it to you upon request, but it takes several days usually to get the code. I know because I used to work at a ATT call center.
