Arrow Sim Issues

OK... so I called Verizon, got my phone sim unlocked... all is good - right? Nope.... went to best buy, bought a prepaid phone, activated it... blah blah... Put the sim in the TP2, and it acts like there isn't one in there. HMM... put the Vodaphone one in - sim recognized. Put att card in - nothing.

Am I missing something?

edit: I should also add that im not even getting a sim error. just plain n simply like no sim card installed

Being VZW stoc rom shouldn't have anything to do with it at all.... Basically, by adding a sim card to a VZW phone, you- in affect- can have the best of both radios in your phone, as well as have two seperate numbers. (no you cant have both numbers ring at the same time... depends on which mode you are in) But im not even getting 2G... so.....

Re: Sim Issues

Is it maybe just an issue with this sim? I'd hate to think that I wasted $35.... but then again, it is only $35, and my phone still works the way it should... lol

Well here is the issue with that statement.

Watching a commercial does not in any way properly inform you on the products or services a company offers. Saying AT&T is a "2g" carrier, a term I have never heard used before btw, is incorrect. No carrier with a 3g network has 3G everywhere in the US. They all have fall back data networks. Verizon included. So what you are actually saying here is that all carriers in the US are "2g" carriers. Not trying to be a ass about it at all. Just trying to educate you a bit more on it.

Re: Sim Issues

CDMA TP2s are SIM unlocked to any other provider worldwide. They are specifically blocked from U.S. GSM carriers. At least that's the way that Sprint has it set up.
