There Kin One is a CDMA phone which means you need a CDMA network. Australia used to have one (Telstra) but they closed down their CDMA network. You won't be able to use the Kin One in Australia I'm afraid!

SOURCE: Cannot upload pictures I've taken with my KIN TWOm

I suspect that the reason you cannot "See" the pictures is because you do NOT have the correct CODEC installed on the PC. You need to find out what the picture storage format the Phone stores it's images in, and then obtain and install the same CODEC on your PC, then the images should be recognised and will be able to be displayed and opened.
Codecs explained above.

SOURCE: i cant figure out how

Your Microsoft Kin One has 4GB of Internal storage memory.It doesn't have a card slot for inserting Memory cards.It has got another 256MB RAM and a 600MHz ARM 11 processor with Nvidia Tegra chipset for multitasking and other high-end network capabilities and hence there won't be a hanging problem on your phone even if you use the whole 4GB storage memory.So you can install various supporting applications,pictures,videos and music and fill all the internal storage with your own stuffs without even thinking of a hanging problem.

Hope you are satisfied with my solution.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

New sim card and new phone. But nothing works. Is there anything regarding unlock

First ensure through your network provider that the new SIM card has been activated. If not wait for the activation to complete. Everything will be fine.
If the activation has been completed and still if it doesn't work, Insert your SIM card into any other active mobile phone and check whether it works with it. If it doesn't work there is some problem with your SIM card. Contact the seller where you bought your SIM card. If it works fine with the other phone, then there must be some problem with your new phone's SIM port.
Try inserting any other active SIM card to your phone and check whether the SIM port of your mobile phone is fine.
Also make sure that the new phone is free from network restriction or locked to same network of your new SIM card. If it has been locked to some other network, you need to unlock your device.
To unlock a mobile phone from network restriction, you need to enter it's unique unlock code. You can get an unlock code from the respective network provider or from any private service. For example, If you have a Blackberry phone, You can visit UnBBLock.Com to get the unlock code. If you have any other model phone, visit to get the unlock code at affordable cost with easy unlocking guide. Good luck.

I lost my t-mobile sim card, how i get the same

you simply will need to take your phone to a t-Mobil dealer in town. Tell them you have lost your sim card and you need a replacement. They can activate a new sim card for you. How ever most places do charge you $20.00 for the new sim card.

please rate this as fixya if it has answered your question.

The SIM Card has to be activated by the provider first before the phone will be able to use it. Make sure the phone is unlocked or it will not recognize the sim card from anywhere but where it was bought and locked to. Hope this helps. You may want to send the phone back to Australia to have the SIM card installed there and sent to you when it is working with the sim card.
