My Device: Blackberry Curve 8520

no signal in unlocked phone

my blackberry curve 9360 recently broke so i bought a curve 8520 unlocked off ebay but i can't get any signal on it.

 

it is a t-mobile phone and my sim card is orange, went onto 'manage connections'  and scanned for available networks but it only came up with 02 and sometimes comes up with vodafone. i've turned the phone off and taken the battery out a few times too and that still hasn't worked

 

contacted the person i bought it off on ebay and she said her daughter used the phone with a giffgaff sim card, so the phone is unlocked

 

i don't think it can be a problem with my sim card because ive used it in my friends orange blackberry curve 8520 before and it worked fine

 

can someone help me pleassse :smileysad:

Re: no signal in unlocked phone

go to Options > Advanced Options > SIM card > hold ALT button and press MEPD. You'll see a a hidden menu. If your phone is unlocked then you'll find the 'Disabled' beside all the value.

Please confirm.

All others are enabled?! Then your phone is not unlocked.
