You need to get it unlocked either by doing a search for unlocking blackberry 7290 and paying one of the online services.

Service providers will unlock their phones as well just tell them your traveling abroad and you need to unlock the phone. Otherwise if it is not affiliated with a service provider you will most likely have to pay someone to get you unlock code.

I do apologize but in order to unlock that phone you will need to either call the provider it was from and tell them your traveling abroad if you are currently with the provider or know someone who is they should be able to unlock it.

Otherwise you will have to pay for the unlock online. Sorry I have searched high and low for software I can use to unlock multiple phones and I have yet to fine it for the blackberries.

Network inactive

It could be that roaming is disabled either on your phone or on your account.

You should contact t-mobile at 1-877-453-1304 and see if roaming is enabled on the phone.

Device stays on GSM

You may need to upgrade software, but if you have a sim card pull your sim card and battery leave them out for a couple minutes, put phone back together and see if it resolves your issue, could be a glitch in the network.
