Answer by ~~Sidd~~
first off… is there an ATT logo on your sim or a cingular logo?
your phone needs an update….*most* customer care reps know how to do this…but alas some dont… call cutomer care tell them you are activating a new device on the service… read them the IMEI from the phone
The IMEI can be displayed by dialling the code *#06#
write this number down its 15 digits long
give the care rep the imei and tell them your phone model is an X426…they will update your service and your phone will work…
same except tell them its a 427M
