I've been on T-mobile WnW Pro for a while now on the SIM only tariff. I'd used it on an ex-orange C550 with no problems for a few months.

I wanted to try 3G data on it. The "right" (for me) handset wasn''t available at the time so I got an ex-3 Motorola A835 from Ebay.

The handset works fine but when I attempt to power up with the T-mobile SIM it locks up on power up. There is an animated "M" logo and it freezes at that point. Other SIMs work fine. A trawl through various forums suggests this problem is quite common with the latest T-mobile SIMs (and not just on the A835) but no one has a solution. It isn't clear if its a firmware or hardware issue. People with the latest firmware version also seem to have this problem.

Anyone have any suggestions or is the phone unusable on T-mobile?
