How to switch Networks from T-Mobile to Cingular(AT&T)
Hello I have the MX-7 Panasonic cell phone, I got it from a friend who used it with T-Mobile. He said it was an UNLOCKED phone so it could be used with any Network. I have Cingular(AT&T) and for some reason it is not working at all, says not "Location Are not Allowed". it shows when you go into GSM Network as T-Mobile, and it has he option for Cingular, but it doesnt work. Please help. Thank You.

Greetings - It's an Urban Legend that you can track a cell phone using the IMEI number.
What can be done however is report your IMEI number of the lost phone to your carrier like Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, Cingular or T-mobile and ask them to lock your mobile phone. Your cell phone IMEI number will be blacklisted and refused to connect to the phone networks so that is someone should find and try to use your phone it will not be operational. Good Luck, Mikeywaf
are limited to a certain cellular network. This means they are designed
to work only with the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module)s for that
particular network. Some phones can be unlocked, which allows them to
be used on any network. Samsung phones have a unique unlock code which
can be used to free them from their mobile phone operator
About Locked Phones
Only a few companies have lockable phones--T-Mobile, AT&T and
Cingular. Mobile companies lock down phones to keep their customers
from using their phones if they switch to other services. This keeps
you from using the BlackBerry
that you bought at Cingular with the T-Mobile network if you switch.
Phones are normally only unlocked at the mobile company's store, but it
is perfectly legal to unlock your own. The only exception to this is if
your phone contract specifically states that you are not to alter or
modify your phone, and that the phone is the property of the provider,
Unlock Your Samsung Phone
According to AskStudent.com, go to the Nokia Free Unlock Codes
Calculator and download the program (see link in References). Install
and run the Calculator. Find the manufacturer and model for your
Samsung cell phone,
then enter your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment) number. Find the
IMEI number for your phone by dialing *#06#. Choose your country and
cell phone provider and enter your number. A list of codes will appear.
Try them until you find one that works for you.
Test Your Phone
Have a friend with a different network attempt to use his SIM card on
your phone. If it works and your phone identifies her as the owner,
your phone has successfully been unlocked. If not, go back and try
another code. Also, check the information you put into the Calculator.
If you made any errors, you might have gotten the wrong code for your
phone. Correct the errors and try again.
please do let us know the IMIE no of your phone.
for that type *#06# on your mobile.
serial no or IMIE no will flash.
please let us help you to find the the Unlock code for your cell with the help of the code.
sell the phone on e-bay and purchase a cingular phone. only t-mobile and cingular can be unlocked. alltell phone work on a differnet frequency and cannot be compatible with these carriers like yours. sorry.
Are you using the same cell provider? Example: Cingular phone and Cingular Sim Card. Because you can't use say a T-Mobile phone and Cingular Sim Card. Don't really know a solution just thought maybe this might help.
This phone must be made for use on T-Mobile or Cingular/AT&T? Cell phone companies don't want you using their phones with other carriers if you decide to switch. They figure this will keep you from switching. A t-mobile phone will only work with a t-mobile sim card. Same with Cingular. When you put in a sim chip from another carrier, the phone wants a password so you can use it. But you have to get the password from the carrier that sold the phone to use another carrier. There are ways to get this code if you want it.
