    Bought an Unlocked 8700g Getting SIM CARD REJECTED message Help Please!!

    Advertisement



    I bought an unlocked 8700g from T-mobile. I wanted to use this with my Cingular SIM card but when I put in my SIM card it says SIM CARD REJECTED. I checked to see if the phone was unlocked and all the five unlocking categories say disabled. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work? Do I have a bad SIM card? Thanks

    Have you tried the same SIM in a different device? That would tell you if the problem is the SIM.

    Ok, so then we know the SIM works. Do you have a Tmo SIM to try in the 8700g? I have never used an unlocked device before so I am taking stabs in the dark. Have you tried a restart after you get the SIM error?

    Not all SIM cards work in all devices. You may have to get a new SIM. You may also want to lightly rub the SIM with an eraser to clean off any junk that may has stuck to it over time.
