My 2014 Moto X won't recognize SIM cards?

I bought a locked 2014 Moto X from Motorola, used it on Straight Talk (month to month carrier). I am now bringing it to T Mobile, so I paid to have it unlocked. Now, after switching to T Mobile (verified it worked), then tried to port my old phone number over but now after taking the T Mobile SIM out and putting it back in, my phone won't recognize any SIM cards.

SD card info from one phone to a new one...how do I transfer?

I just downloaded Smart Switch on my current phone (Galaxy S2) in anticipation of getting my Galaxy Note4 later this week (which I know to download Smart Switch on that one too)...but how do I know what's on the SD card of my current phone and how do I transfer that info to my new phone?

You will be able to transfer the contents by just placing the microSD card from your S2 into Note4. You can also just plug the microSD card into the card reader of your computer and copy the needed contents (pictures, music, videos) to your PC. Then, transfer those back to the new microSD card.
