    Default Please, i beg the community for help U_U

    my friend gifted me an HTC evo 3D

    i cant get it to read my t-mobile sim card.

    i unlocked it using HTCDEv, it was a huge mistake because it is still in s-ON.
    so i downgraded and used revolution thingy, and i got the simlock off( s-OFF)

    but my phone still wont read my t-mobile sim card. WTF!!!

    the phone is gsm cause there is a sim slot in the back.


    my hboot screen reads:


    -revolutionary-
    SHOOTER_U pvt ship S-off RL
    Hboot-1.49.1107
    my cid htc-032

    im new to the android community and i have no idea what im doing.
    can anyone with experience help me?

    p.s i'm sorry for the horrible grammar. (i'm really frustrated)

    Are you sure it's GSM? Are you confusing it with the microSD slot?

    ok, i am 100% sure it is a sim card slot, when i remove the battery , there is a little picture of a sim card, inside the picture is a 3 letter word. SIM.
    i thought it was cdma until i took it to t-mobile and they said it is a HTC GSM evo.

    Ok. Well, I don't know anyone here who has the GSM version. We're all with Sprint so we don't use the SIM. I guess my first question is did it EVER read the SIM?

    I might be misunderstanding, but it sounds like you're saying simlock off = s-off. I'm pretty new to this rooting thing, but I'm pretty sure that getting the sim-unlocked and getting s-off is two different things. s-off allows you to write to a the boot partion which is necessary to flash custom kernals not built into the boot.img and to change your spash screen. I don't know what it take to get the simlock off, but like I said, I'm pretty sure it's not just getting s-off.

    But like I said, I'm pretty new and might be totally wrong.

    Also, I always recommend using a descriptive Title for your post. You get better responses when you do. "Please, i beg the community for help U_U" doesn't let anyone know what you need help with and the person who knows a lot about getting sim-unlocked might not pay attention to this post. Something like "Trying to get a T-Mobile SIM to work in the GSM Evo3D" would be a lot more discriptive.

    Have you tried over @ XDA? Those guys would know what to do. If not, here's the link to their GSM EVO 3D forums. Good luck.
