    When it did the software update it said tmobile software update . I can't be sure but it seems to me that t mobile has something in there to keep people loyal judging from their assertation that I should give tmobile all my data even though I didn't have a t mobile sim. Dosent seem right selling people phones that they can unlock when they really cant

    It's unreal my mom and sister both have Samsung's and my gf two of which were unlocked phones . Mine is the only one that ever said t mobile . I've heard that before in passing that tmobile and straight talk were a no go together . I figured because the person I bought it from had it on Verizon it would be fine an old wives tail

    Try flashing the unlock firmware if it works out better.

    I don't know which firmware to get I registered on Sam mobile today but for this device there is a whole list to choose from. I don't want to mess thing up and be unable to sell it and get a phone that works

    It's not rooting , these are stock Samsung firmwares, but only other way is getting a Verizon sim straight from Verizon , skip strait talk

    I went too a verizon store and bought a verizon sim . That's how I got the splash to change . I cant afford a verizon plan and unfortunately Verizon is the only towers close enough to me . Should I get the first in the firmware list on Sam mobile or the most recent ?

    Understand, sammobile takes too long to download, get Frija tool from XDA forums and extract it then open and put the model number for device which will be unlocked not yours currently and use csc next to it VZW

    Next get from XDA forums the latest Prince Comsey Odin and download and extract .

    Let me know once you get that far

    I created a file c: Odin downloaded Frija extracted to c: odin downloaded odin extracted to c: odin :

    Odin opens fine . Frija stops working immediately upon opening . Erased frija re downloaded a few times no good . Downloaded the version just previous to the latest again stops working and closes as soon as I try to open it m what gives?

    Did you get the issue fixed?.. The thing that I've been reading is that an "unlocked" version works on metro.. so when I get a second I'm going to try and flash it to the unlocked version.. before buying a new phone
