you have to contact T-mobile technical support and have them guide you through programming their internet settings on the phone. although the phone is unlocked the internet settings currently on the phone is for cingular. have them program the same settings as the t-mobile MDA phone (same phone as 8125, shipped for t-mobile)
If you have de code, try this:
Enter non-Cingular SIM card,power phone off and than on.It will say on the screen "invalid smartcard" enter 159753#*# It will bring next screen-enter your unlock code and press OK.
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.
The LG CU500 is a 3G phone I think. You may need to change your SIM CARD to 3G. I had a razor and my Sim didn't work with the LG CU320 I bought. Also unlocking a LG phone is a little more troublesome that other phones. I found a solution on the web. sorry I don't remember the website address, but it comes up in any google search. Hope this helps.
