    Hi everyone,

    Just had one question ... I will be picking up my 8900 tonight (from someone on CL) and was wondering if there are any issues using an AT&T SIM Card in an unlocked T-Mobile phone?

    Will the phone have the TMobile layout?

    Any known issues running the AT&T SIM on the T-Mobile unlocked phone?


    Thanks!

    Lots of people have T-Mobile 8900's on AT&T... you will see the T-Mobile logo when it boot up all the time... but you will not get UMA calling because AT&T does not support UMA.

    so all I will see is T-Mobile when I turn it on, that's it?

    Yes it will still have Tmobile branding, but ATT should work fine, and once you get the service books, you should get all the ATT stuff on their such as MEdia net.

    Yup the branding will be TMO. But I think its kinda funny when I turn my phone on and it has the Rogers splash--and I'm on fido!

    Make sure its unlocked before buying it. Go to Options->Advanced Options ->Sim Card-> type mepd...should say inactive or disabled next to Network..anything else, means its locked

    It sounds like a OS issue not a unlocking issue.

    Not a locking issue, try to do a Wipe Handeld or update the OS, that should fix the problem.
