    If you got your phone from cingular, it is conceivable that it has a subsidy lock and thsus cannot accept cards from any other carrier. (or was pacbell incorporated into cingular ??? I dunno about that small detail)

    Try to find out if the phone has a subsidy lock on it. If it does get it off and your SIM probably will work.
