Re: Unlocked phone not working with T-mobile

Since these are retail purchased units, T-Mobile may need to activate the IMEI on their network.
I would ask the T-Mobile rep to confirm your IMEI is activated.

SGH A817 to t-mobile

Yes, on an unlocked phone you can easily switch SIM cards. All you can do is put the T-Mobile SIM card in the phone and it should show signal bars on the top of the phone. If not you can call up T-Mobile and ask them for correct network settings and they should be able to help you out with this.

If the phone is not unlocked it wont work with any other sim card except the original carrier SIM card. In this case you first need to unlock it.

I am posting the link below incase you need unlock code for your device:

Hi,what message does your mobile is showing you when you insert your mobile? is it showing "Enter Restriction Code or Enter Unlock Code" if it shows any of this then your mobile is not yet unlocked and to unlock it you can do it by getting unlock codes from online providers..once i got unlock code for my mobile from wickedunlock and unlocked my can too try getting codes for your mobile and get it unlocked..and if this is not the problem then you can contact your near by service center to know whats the problem in your mobile..

If your sim shows wrong SIM card then that sim card is not compatible with the phone means it is not the SIM which was present when the mobile was bought. You need to insert the SIM card which provided with this SIM and unlock it. Unlocking services are provided by the Service provider or Online. This site provides quick unlocking. Once you have unlocked you can insert any SIM card and use your mobile.

I need an unlock code for a samsung impression i had att butnow i have t mobile

Hey welcome to fixya, i hope u 'll be fine. to unlock your cell try this solution

First do a CUSTOM reset: *2767*2878#
turn off the phone
Now Take out the battery and sim and put wrong network SIM and insert only a half of it,
Very important so it won't ask for network password and shows "Insert SIM" message.(possibly in a different language)
Now put the battery again,and switch the phone on .(phone 'll show "Insert SIM" message.)
Push the sim fully in at this stage the phone is still asking to "Insert SIM"
NowMake a FULL reset: *2767*3855#
The phone should reboot working with wrong sim inside.
Make a Change the password to 8 zeros by typing: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
Now Disable network lock By typing: #7465625*638*00000000#
Phone is unlocked

Note : Please keep back up of your files before unlocking
This will also bring the phone to default settings

You can also try another solution from here

I hope this solution 'll helpful for u. Best of luck
Please keep thumbs up in do Rating.
Thanks & Keep using fixya

If the SIM card comes from a country that does NOT have a roaming agreement with the country where you are trying to use it, it won't work.
Also you may have to select a network manually. In some countries for whatever reasons Auto select won't work.

If you switch 'Cell Info Display' on your phone to 'on' it will show you when you change from one network to another.

I'm not sure about t-mobile in the US of A.
