    Hi guys,

    purchased a brand new sealed T-Mobile 8320 off a reputable BB seller on EBay. Received the hand set and popped in my UK T-Mobile simcard and throws an invalid error message. I was under the assumption that I was able to use my UK sim as it is still T-Mobile but it doesn't recognise it. Anyone know what the problem could be and a way round it?

    Cheers,

    Waz

    Double check and make sure the card is inserted correct. Mine is very picky for some reason. It appears to be just fine but is not recognized, if I reinsert it all is OK.

    no luck I am afraid, I get the feeling that a UK T-Mobile sim can't work in a US T-Mobile phone, anyone care to confirm?

    It actually needed to be unlocked, a UK T-mobile sim doesn't work on a US T-Mobile handset. Used GSMPhonesource and was pleased with their service.
