    So I bought a T-mobile Blackberry Bold 9700 from a friend, who told me it was unlocked...and it is just not working. When I insert the Simple Me sim card, the phone will not even turn on. When I try to wipe the phone, the options to do so are not available. When i try to restore the factory settings, it asks for a password. I'm not sure what to do....

    My suggestion is to try and do a fresh install of the OS.

    Thanks! ....and how do i do that (in regards to installing the OS, which I also think is the case)?

    BTW, i've also tried connecting it to a couple of different computers (macs and pcs), but the computer does not recognize it. The phone charges but nothing showed up on any computer.
