    Hi I recently bought a nokia 3390 for voice stream online, I have cingular however. When i tried putting my cingular sim card in, it said sim card not accepted. Is this because it isnt compatable with cingular? Or do I have to do something else? I thought since it was the 3390 I would still be able to use my cingular sim card.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    GSM providers usually SIM lock there phones to a provider. Otherwise Cingular GSM phone's will only work with Cingular GSM chips, and VoiceStream phone's will only work with VoiceStream SIM card's.

    Sometimes you can get a unlocked GSM phone, but it sounds like to me that you bought a locked one that only works with VoiceStream SIM card's.

    VoiceStream will give you the "unlock code" if you call them. Once you unlock the phone, it will work with Cingular.

    If VoiceStream won't give you the unlock code, no.
