Your SIM card is locked to the Motorola phone. You can either wait another half of a month for the SIM to automatically unlock itself or you can call customer service to have them unlock it for you. 1-800-331-0500 or 611 "more options", "customer service" from your GoPhone.

Does that mean once the sim card unlocks itself i'll be good to put it in the captivate?

Yes, that is correct. Most SIM cards are locked to the original phone of activation for a period of six months. After that, they "free" themselves and can be used in any AT&T or unlocked phone.

It would be much quicker to call customer service and have them unlock the phone for you if you want to use it right away.
