My Device: bold 9900 and 9930
My Carrier: verizon

Bold 9900 with sim not provisioned

I lost my phone in China but not my Verizon Sim card, my USA service provider. I purchased a Bold 9900 (my old phone a 9930) in Beijing and my Verizon sim card worked. Since I returned it will not work and I get a message Sim not provisioned:2 on top with no service. When I check my phone it appears it is looking for an ATT  service provider. Is ther anything I can do to make this phone work with Verizon. I hate to just throw it away. Verizon said it worked overseas because it was roaming but they cannot activate it. This seems strang because they could alow it to function interntionally and with my number and track it and bill me for calls and data.  Any help would be appreciated--MARK

Re: Bold 9900 with sim not provisioned

A 9900 model device will NOT work on Verizon, ever. It doesn't have the CDMA network bands needed to work on Verizon.

 

And, Verizon will not allow devices other than those sold by or branded to Verizon on it's network in the US.

 

It worked fine in China, as it was roaming in China on the local GSM network.

Re: Bold 9900 with sim not provisioned

Is there any ATT branding on the lower front bezel or back of the device?

 

On the home screen, please press and hold the ALT  and lower right Shift key and type and H to bring up the Help Me! screen, what is the vendor ID of the device?
