Was on AT&T. Company with a "box" unlocked it. BUT, it could not send pix on either network or as Picture Messages. I tried (foolishly) entering a code from the Unclock To Talk Company on the net. Didnt help, BUT when I turned it off, it would not turn on again. completely shut off. Cannot turn it on. As if I did it on purpose to keep it being used by a stranger. HELP??

Re: 580i wont turn on!
Hi all you need to do is do a flea power by removing the battery and dont connect to the charger while you do that make sure you take the sim out leave it turned off for 20 mins then just connect the ac adapter (charger) try to turn the phone on and then it will ask you for the sim card. Unplug the charger insert the sim follow the same process of connecting and now you can get the battery installed and then the charger then turn on the phone check the status and tell me, ill assist you further.

if the phone is unlocked and you are using the phone on a different network. Example---T-mobile phone with a AT&T sim card you won't be able to send or receive or get on the internet. Each company has different settings for the Data networks so either call tech support and see if they can reprogram with there specs.
try send ytour self a picture message i would also talk to your service provider maby tou havent done your settings properly, hope this is some help to you! also some networks wont accept photo from other networks
I've had the same issue, and I was told that in order to send or recieve picture messages, you have to subscribe to Verizon's Internet plan. The reason that you can still send and recieve text messages is because it's on a different system. I was a bit peeved when I found this out after the fact.
First need to find the IMEI for your phone. Power on phone
and type *#06# this will display the IMEI. You will need the IMEI to get the corresponding unlock code. Every phone has a different unlock code. Then call your provider and request the unlock code.
