        The phone works, right? Are you the original owner? If so, you've got nothing to be concerned about.

         

        If you are not the original owner and you bought the phone secondhand, I only hope that the phone has been fully paid off and has not and will not be reported lost/stolen/damaged and end of getting blacklisted.

         

        As far as the IMEI check is concerned, again, I wouldn't sweat it.

                    Since T-Mobile didn't sell the device, they don't have a record of it in their database. The phone should still work fine.

                                Apple has this sim lock policy. You need to complain to Apple to change their policy.

                                 

                                What happens is unlocked sim iPhone when you put a carrier sim it will lock to that carrier. The carrier does not have those IMEI in the system and can't request an unlock because they have no idea who's device it belongs to. This policy was long criticized before Apple even established the policy.
