    I mistakenly ran mine through the washing machine,I got the same issue. My carrier is embarq and customer service and repair told me that there is no sym card in the sanyo katana 2,they also told me that there is no hope of retrieving the data,pics ,etc. They also told me that the local store has a machine that the could plug it into and retrieve my data before they told me that they could not. as soon as i get my new phone,on or about 4/11/09, i am going to look into this possibility. my momhas the same phone it went through the washer and then right through the dryer and hers is working fine. thanks

Unfortunately it will not work. TMobile uses GSM technology while Sprint is on CDMA.

Sim Card on my Katana 2 phone

If both your phones are locked to Sprint as your service provider, no problem, just transfer the sim card from one phone to the other.

How do I unlock my Sanya Katana II cell phone bought in U.S.?

Contact Sprint and tell them you are going overseas and wish to use a local SIM card. They will provide you with the code and instructions. As for risks, there really aren't any to speak of. The only risk is that if you insert the unlock code 5 or more times incorrectly, the phone will be permanently locked to Sprint.

Katana II on Embarq network want to use it on Sprint. Help Unlock Please

Most likely, you will have to purchase an unlock code from another website that is specific to your phone. There is no guarantee though that there is a code for it. You will also need a valid Sprint SIM Card. Please be aware though, if you do manage to unlock your phone, not all of the features may work. Features that are specific to the Embraq network will not work after the unlock. And you will not gain features specific to Sprint due to it not being an original Sprint phone. As long as you are ok with that then go for it. Look for the best price though. They vary from website to website.

Katana II: my keypad doesn't work.

Six months is well under the manufacturer warranty. Call Sprint or take it into a store.
