You can call T-Mobile and inform them that you want to use the phone in the UK on their system - with your T-Mobile SIM card and they will more than likely either unlock the phone or provide you the 'special' code to use it in the UK.

Your other alternative is to purchase an unlock code from eBay. The choice is really yours.

Okay i have tmobile service but i broke my phone and my mom bought me a tracfone to put my sim card in, but it says sim lock code. So i guess my question is that is there anyway i can use my tmobile sim...


Hello,

Well like most carries I believe tracfone will not let you use a tmobile sim card because the phone is locked to tracfone only. Typically you could unlock your phone to use with any service provider that uses sim cards. However I do not have the process instructions for your particular phone model.

You can purchase unlocked phones on amazon.com, ebay etc. If you are satisfied with your tmobile service perhaps you could always get a tmobile phone.

Post back if you have any further questions. Thank you for choosing Fixya.

I got a new phone am faced with the problem of imputing the subsidy password.its actually a Motorola w233.please help me out!


You will need to contact the carrier to request the subsidy password and you might even need to replace the sim card.
If it is AT&T you'll need to call or take it into the store.
If it is Tmobile
Unlocking the SIM card (SIM card subsidy lock) IMPORTANT: Stop if you receive an error message while performing the instructions below. The phone will be permanently locked if you make multiple attempts to unlock. 1. Verify the IMEI by typing *#06#. 2. Submit a new request. 3. Type 7465625*638*Unlock Code#.

I just bought a tmobile phone off this girl,an i tried to put in the code an now it reads your sim has been security locked please contact customer care for a puk number code sim6 i dont have tmobile...


I would get my money back because only T-Mobile will be able to give the info that you need and my guess is that the phone WAS stolen by the girl you got it from. If it was not stolen, and the account was under the name of the girl you got it from you should have HER call. You will be able to find out if it was stolen right then and there. You can also just contact T-Mobile and ask them. Just tell them you bought from ebay and see what they say, no harm done. This happens all the time with cell phones.

Just got new cect i68 phone off ebay


You need to call T Mobile because you bought the phone off Ebay. It has to be re registered in there system and set up under their network regardless of any other factor. They have to put their numbers in the Nam1 and Nam2 parts of the phone with the EIM and CDM. That may mean nothing to you but it makes your phone run!! Give T Mobile a call from a LANDLINE phone

You must contact tmobile with the phones information. The sim is registered but Network does not reconize your phone as an authorized device.
