if the ESN/IMEI checks out with swappa you don't have a paperweight. call T-Mobile and register your device.
factory reset every and if it still isn't working try installing factory images.
you're only stuck with a paperweight if its reported stolen (which only works if the phone was bought from T-Mobile directly.) or if it doesn't work whatsoever

If your signature says something like "Hit the thanks button if I've helped," I automatically assume you're here for "likes" and really care about imaginary internet points.
You're on the wrong site. Don't be that person. Its ridiculous.
