Default your sim card does not allow connection to this network 311660

Hi Guys.

I just bought a unlocked HTC Vivid X710a on ebay. I received it and took off the sim card from my Metro PCS phone and placed it in the HTC.

However I am getting this error message when I try to connect to the Metro PCS network (311660)

"your sim card does not allow connection to this network"

What should I do?

Thanks

Maybe the phone is blocked from that network by IMEI.

To follow up, I placed a T-Mobile Sim Card on it and it worked perfectly.

what do you guys think? Could it be a sim card problem? but if so, why does it work on my metro pcs phone?

Problem solved.

Metro PCS Sim cards are locked to only one phone. Went to the store and the assigned the new phone for a 16$ charge.
