Default Phone seeing the network but not connecting to it

I've been swapping my sim into a few new devices lately and put it back in the Note 2 earlier. It's seeing the network but won't connect to it. The sim works in the other devices so it must be a problem with this phone. I removed it a few times, toggled airplane mode, and restarted it. Nothing! Any ideas?

"Your sim card does not allow a connection to this network" and "unable to connect, try later" pop up when I try to select my network.

Which carrier's SIM are you using? Which device are you on (SGH-T889, SGH-I317 etc). If not a T889 on Tmo, what method did you use to unlock it?

How long have you had the device? Did you get it new from Tmo/retailer? If not, have you checked the IMEI via the Tmo website?

889 on T-Mobile, still locked, bought on swappa about six months ago.

I found out the problem yesterday; apparently the phone has been blocked! Off to send the swappa folks an email...

We hear about that quite a bit. The world is rife with slimy people.

Thankfully, the guy I brought it from was able to clear it. Apparently he had purchased it from someone else!
