Simple Mobile SIM card will work with your SIM locked T-mobile Dell Streak 7.
I was able to get my Simple Mobile card to work perfectly by overwriting the existing T-mobile APN settings and hitting save. It will NOT work if you try to add brand new APN settings list unless you are able to get the unlock code from T-mobile and it's not easy.
So open the T-mobile APN list and make it look like this:
Name: Simple Mobile
MMS Proxy: 188.8.131.52 or [empty]
MMS Port: 8080 or [empty]
APN Type: [Empty]
Then hit the menu button and select "save". You''ll see your radio restart and BAM you're enjoying your Dell Streak a whole lot more.
Remember the default T-mobile settings will show back up if you do a factory reset.
Android phones are the only true "smartphones" everything else are just glorified "feature phones"
