    This phone is fully unlocked. Set to GSM and 2G. This is wierd today I woke up to go to work and my phone rang and I was able to talk. I made a couple of calls to see it work. I would say I live about 5 miles the most from work. Once I got home I tired to call someone and got the same message.

    We have a 9630 Tour here unlocked and tried to use it with a T-Mobile SIM card and get the same message "No circuit channel available". Weird part is that it works fine with an AT&T Sim card. So the problem only seems to be with a T-Mobile SIM card. Our techs are working on finding the fix. We will keep you posted as soon as we do.

    i have the Tour unlocked for use with T-mobile as well
    Let me describe some of my personal problems I ran into

    1) Calling works, however when someone calls me on the other line, you have to hit the menu and it says FLASH (which i guess is like an old school way of switching between calls). Anyhow, when you press flash it doesn't show you are talking to two people how a regular 8900 or bold or any other blackberry would. It DOES NOT show one number as held and one active, it just shows whoever ur talking too and thats IT. Like an old house phone ! I couldn't believe it !

    2) I did the same exact thing as for the storm to put the service books on and that did not work to get my browser up.

    All in all i like the phone, its bigger than the 8900 but smaller than the bold. You can call it "just right" for me. But its not right at all, until all these minor things are worked out.

    Someone let me know whats up

    The Tour is just like the Storm once unlocked it will work on ANY gsm network.
    This is a problem on RIM / SPRINT side should have a fix soon. It seems to be only on the Sprint unlocks all my Verizon, Telus, are working fine.

    We have found that you need a new card card 128mb. This has taken care of problems for my customers. Phone comes with 32 or 64 mb.

    So far I can't find a way to tell from looking straight at a SIM card if it's 32k or 64k unless it's printed on the thing.

    The reason, apparently, why 32k cards don't work is because 3G services require 64k SIM cards since the Tour is 3G GSM capable (overseas only) it needs a 64k card to work.

    The only way to know for sure is to put it in and try it. I do see on my receipt for my AT&T GoPhone SIM card it does say 64k.

    128k SIMs are extremely rare from what I've managed to find but I don't see why they wouldn't work seeing as 64k works...

    I think on AT&T SIM cards they now will say "3G" in a little orange fireball logo if it's 64k.

    Has anyone got a non prepaid tmo sim to send and receive calls with Sprint or Verizon Tour? If so please tell me if your phone came unlocked or you had to unlock it.
    Thanks!!!

    J - if I were you, return the Tour if you are still within 30 days. I honestly don't think it will be resolved anytime soon. I found out that the old Tmo plan that I previously had causing some features in the unlock Tour not to work.
    However, it's still not working. Just like you - I am still looking for solution.
    By the way - all Sprint Tour already unlocked if you bought them just recently. I bought mine last week and it's unlock already. However, the Verizon is not unlocked - thus you will need to get it unlock.
    Whatever the solution will be - you will need to unlock the Tour.

    I just got my tour from sprint, it came already unlocked. I installed my t-mobile sim card (new one) and was able to make calls and receive my emails. But I cannot access the browser or send MMS.
