I have a factory unlock iphone 5 16gb form At&T and it works perfectly fine under att simcard network. gets a signal, makes calls, etc. all from at&t sim.
But when i put in a T-mobile sim card, it would show searching then "no service".
The phone has been restored to 6.1.3 and it gives me a message that it's been unlocked. It activates fine with the t-mobile sim card and fetches the carrier bundle OTA too. but it would not pull a signal. i have another iphone 5 unlocked and that works fine under t-mobile. same sim card, same house. just that the other one will not work.
anyone have any ideas why?

Not sure why it won't pick it up. Take it to an apple store and see if they are willing to replace it
