Hi All,

I bought a Tmobile galaxy s blaze 4g (SGH-T769) from HSN last year, it was never activated or used on tmobile. I tried to put a old at&t sim I had in it and it said sim invalid. I get the same message when I put an active Verizon sim in as well.

I used a service online for an unlock code and after following the directions it prompted for pin and it seems to be unlock after entering pin

When I insert the Verizon sim it does not display invalid but it cycles between Verizon APN and Vodaphone NL .

When I try to make a call it said not registered on network

When I put the at&t sim back into the phone, I get the not registered network but am thinking because its an old inactive sim or not?

My issue is I want to use this phone in Brazil this summer so I need it unlocked and right now I am not sure if it really is unlocked?

any ideas?

Just so I get this correctly, Verizon, even though it has a sim, is CDMA network Only. So my my only option to test is a vlid AT&T sim?

Thanks for responding

I used a friends at&t working sim and it worked great so the phone is unlocked. I guess the Verizon 4g lte is different frequency anyway plus for some reason I thought it was some form of GSM. lol

ALL good to go here..
