Re: need to remove t-mobil from phone and put in at and...
Ok since you bought it on ebay the easiest thing to do is contact emobile at this link
have them unlock it. then get it hooked up to whichever carrier you wanted to use it for. these PROGRAMS you can use to unlock them will ruin your phone.

Are you using the same cell provider? Example: Cingular phone and Cingular Sim Card. Because you can't use say a T-Mobile phone and Cingular Sim Card. Don't really know a solution just thought maybe this might help.
If the Cingular SIM card won't operate the T-mobile phone now? You'll have to have the phone "Unlocked" for it to work with your ATT/Cingular SIM Card. Some local Cell Phone Shops may provide unlocking services for a nominal fee (you'll have to call around and ask), or you can send it out to be unlocked as this service can be found by searching online, as you can see here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cell+phone+unlocking&btnG=Google+Search
Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.
Your safest bet is to contact cingular for an unlock code. THere are also tons websites that are out there for unlock codes, most require payment.
Be careful if you use a website however... If the wrong unlock code is entered too many times the phone will be permanently locked to tmobile
