To connect to the internet & to send & receive pic messages you must activate the GPRS first from your network provider ...The best thing you can do is to contact the customer care of your network provider and ask for the GPRS settings ...
they will tell you the procedure to activate it ....
they will tell the number to which the message to be sent to recieve the settings ....
so note that down and then follow the procedures told by them ...
to send and receive the MMS you must activate the GPRS first make sure of the charges with them there will be many plans & then get activated ...
after this you will able to send and receive the pic messages ...

Where can I buy a sim card to use while traveling out of Canada to the United States?


First, you need to make sure your phone is SIM unlocked. After unlocking your phone, you can purchase an Cingular (AT&T) SIM card on eBay. Then call 1-800-331-0500. And set up a Go Phone account.

Go Phone is owned by Cingular (AT&T) in the United States. This is a pre-pay cell phone account that uses the Cingular (AT&T) SIM cards. You will have several options as to how you will be billed depending on the service you require. Pre-pay data is also available too, for an extra fee with the Go Phone plan.

See Go Phone Plans: http://bit.ly/cIo8dG


AT&T uses the 850/1900MHz band (1900 MHz UMTS band for 3G data) for cell phones in the US. Make sure your phone can use this bands.

If you need to SIM unlock your phone, you can do this two different ways.

The first is to contact your service provider and inform them that you need to have your phone SIM unlocked for international travel. Most providers require your account to be in good standing and that you've been their customer for a certain amount of time. Then, it's free.

The second is to purchase an unlock code. These can usually be found on eBay for as little as $2 US.

To search for the unlock code for your phone, on eBay, type in your phone model and the words 'unlock code' and your current service provider. (Example: Samsung BlackJack i607 Unlock Code Rogers) Once purchased, simply follow the instructions sent to you with the code and unlock your phone - then use the Cingular (AT&T) SIM card with the Go Phone pre-pay plan.

Tip: On some phones you must insert a SIM card NOT used by your current service provider when you enter the unlock code.

  1. To unlock a GSM phone, request the access code from the service provider. Unlock codes are provided for phones exclusive to certain carriers, such as the G1 for T-Mobile or the iPhone for Cingular. A charge may be applied for the unlock code.

    Unlock codes can also be generated online through websites such as freeyourcellphone.com. The website simply asks for the IMEI code from the back of the phone, located under the battery, the model of the phone and the current service provider to generate an unlock code.
  2. Once you have the code, remove your battery and sim card. Place your battery back into the phone and turn it on. The phone will state "insert SIM." Enter the code exactly as it was given to you.
  3. Once you enter the code, hit the call button. A prompt will pop up stating that the restriction has been lifted or that the phone lock has been removed. Both messages indicate that the phone is now unlocked.
  4. Now that the phone is unlocked, a new sim card can be placed into the phone. The new service provider must also work off a GSM network in order for the phone to work.
  5. Unlocking a cell phone is legal, but it will void the warranty of the handset. Phones also have a built-in number of unlock attempts allowed.

How to detect the sim card i put?


I guess your phone has not been unlocked yet. Unlocked phones do not have any specific carrier software and work with all GSM carriers. These include T-Mobile, Cingular and AAAA . Multi-band unlocked phones also will work with carriers in other countries.So I guess you need to unlock your phone so that u can enjoy in your country.

It appears that the Kyocera m1000 is a CDMA phone and thus would not be compatible with the ATT/Cingular network that is GSM (uses a SIM card and CDMA doesn't). If though your Kyocera is a GSM phone? You would have to take your SIM card and insert it into the M1000 and as long as the phone is unlocked or locked to Cingular/ATT it will work.
