Default BB 7730 Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought an unlocked Blackberry 7730 off ebay. When I popped my SIM card into it, it said no network available. I contacted the people from ebay and they said it was unlocked. The phone was T-Mobile was unlocked for anything (I have Cingular). What's wrong?

check against this to make certain it is unlocked
How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? - BlackBerryFAQ

If it is not, contact the owner.

If it is, you could have a bad SIM, or inserted wrongly.

No, I have the SIM card inserted correctly because my number shows up on the phone but it says no network available

Go to Options / Network (I forget exactly where it is) and make sure the Network Scan is set to Automatic.

It says Network: AT&T and searching and then sometimes it will say Network: *None* and say searching for network. It will go back and forth to those two things

Manual. But it won't let me change it. The network selection mode doesn't come up when the SIM card is in but when it's not it comes up as manual and won't let me change.

Whoa - it should be on automatic.
Not manual - it is configured for another carrier and will not connect to AT&T.

And I don't know what to try.
