    may be you need to talk to t-mobile regarding this. They will be able to help you. You may want to give calling t-mobile a try as it has nothing to do with phone settings.

Hi,
These so called boost sim cards are not all they are cracked up to be, i have bought plenty of these cards and now they are sat in a drawer doing nothing.
Getting these things to actually be recognized in the phone is feat in itself because of the amount of messing about you have to do repositioning the magic sim under the real sim.
They are supposed to bypass the sim lock on the phone but i found they only work on older phones and some first generation BB5 phones (3G).

You can either try repositioning the card and keep on trying to get a network or you can take the phone to an unlocking store. Other than that you can of course phone T-Mobile and ask them for the PUK code to unlock the phone to all networks. they will charge you around $15-$20 (£10-£15) for the code.

Good luck.

It looks like the Wing is not really unlocked.
To unlock the Wing ou must have purchased the Wing at least three months ago, or unlock will not work.Go to phone network setting and ensure that it is not set to T mobile only, just in case.
Also test different sims.

If the phone is set to get network automatically, then unlock had not been done properly.

The unlock code must be obtained calling Tmobile. Dial T Mobile number (150 , 611or different number depending on location) and ensure that the smart phone is unlocked. If not ask for a new unlock code.

How do i unlock alcatel onetouch view 5.0loct to boost mob


Do you want to unlock your Alcatel one touch from network lock ? In which network your phone is locked to ? Use unlock code to unlock your phone from network lock . You can get code from any of the online vendors like Unlock-Zone.com to unlock it . After unlocking your phone, you can use any of the GSM sim cards internationally . If your phone supports for both GSM and CDMA sim card , you can use Boost mobile . If your phone accepts only GSM sim card , you can't use Boost mobile sim card with it .

I unlocked my blackberry phone. i have a boost mobile phone and i want to switch my number and credits over from my boost mobile account/phone to my unlocked blackberry


Just put your boost sim card mobile phone to your blackberry phones. Normally if your already unlocked your blackberry using blackberry bold 9700 unlock code, your phone can accept any of sim card from different network provider. As long as you have correct blackberry unlock code it should be no problem. Make sure your sim card have same network frequency with your blackberry suport frequency specification. Don't put cdma on gsm and vice versa, it will not work.

I have a boostmobile simcard and i want to put the tmobile simcard inside the sidekick slide.but when i do it ask me for a special code is there a special code for me to start using it?


you actually need to unlock your phone to use the simcard not just a code. boost mobile and tmobile run and different networks to its not as simple as putting in a different sim card.

How do You unlock a sidekick 08?


Your Sidekick operates on a GSM cellular network. Your Boost SIM card (and Boost Mobile phones) operate on an iDEN cellular system. You cannot use a Boost SIM card in a Sidekick. (FYI - SIM cards cannot be unlocked. Only cellphones phones can be unlocked.)

I have an active nextel i710 and want to move sim card to a i855 boost mobile,but i need a special unlock code.Can u help me.


Remove the battery from the phone. Let it remain out of the phone for 10 minutes with the phone off. Replace the battery and turn the phone on.

This is a problem with the phone trying to read the SIM card after being in another phone. Be patient. It may take several minutes for the phone to read the SIM.

Will my phone work


Above is incorrect. Boost uses two different networks each is different technology. The one using SIM cards is the IDEN network (Nextel). The other is Sprint (who owns Boost) and that does not take a SIM, it's a CDMA network. All Sprint phones can work on this network,but you must get Boost to activate the phone. They won't do this unless you are already a customer and tell them you are replacing a broken phone, then give the Sprint phone ESN# (under battery) for them to log in your account. If you have a Sprint LG Rumor it will then work without unlocking or flashing, no changes necessary.

Looking for unlocked qwerty phone that carry a sim card


If you mean does it use a SIM card, yes, all gsm phones have a sim card. But it may need unlocking if you want to use a different sim than one provided by the original network.

Wing


if the sim is definately ok, Phone is faulty, blacklisted or not designed to be used in your region (eg gsm phone in cdma only area)
ask your service provider if your IMEI (type *#06#) is blacklisted, if so the previous owner has registered it lost or stolen or not paid there bill
