Can't get Nextel i860 to work with my Cingular Sim Card

My neighbor found a Nextel, Motorola i860 cell phone and gave it to me.  I purchased a charger for it and assumed that I could just insert my Cingular Sim card and hit the ground running.  Not the case... After charging, the phone seemed to work fine until I removed the previous owners sim card and inserted mine.  At that point  the phone prompts me to "Enter Special Code Now".  I didn't have to enter any code at all when the other sim card was in the phone.  I tried 00000000 and the last eight numbers of the phone number of the old sim to no avail.  I'm afraid to try a third lest I lock myself out completely.

 

Any help?

Can you change sim card in motorola i860 to work with atnt

No, the i860 is a Nextel phone and uses iDEN as its technology.

Services like AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM, and only those types of SIM cards would work with each other.

While the i860 does take a SIM card, it is a very different SIM for different technology, and are completely not compatible. Sorry....

I have a t-mobile simcard and is asking me for a lock code

If you are attempting to use a T-Mobile SIM card in a Nextel Motorola i730 mobile phone it will NOT work.

T-Mobile phones operate off of a GSM network. The Nextel i730 operates on an iDEN network.

The phone you have can never be compatible with the network you are trying to use it on.

Will my att sim card work in a motorola i560( nextel phone ) ?

no. A Nextel phone is CDMA (code division multiple access) and an AT&T phone is GSM.

The Nextel has no sim card.

Sorry, it won't work.

Resetting motorola i830

There is no way to do such a thing. The i830 works off the iDEN network and is not compatible in any way with the GSM network used by Cingular. Sorry. Truth is, the i830 is junk, you're better off without it.
