Your blackberry storm or Javelin, set the phone to CDMA by default instead of GSM, this usally happens when you buy the phone brand new. So just go to Manage connections>Mobile network options> Network technology and select GSM/UMTS. This happened to me before and i solved the problem after a week having this issue. This also happens when you restore or something like that!
Hope this can help!

I think your phone still locked for particular network and you need to unlock blackberry storm before you put your sim card in that phone. To doing this process you must have blackberry unlock code and you can purchase it at third party sites on internet.

My blackberry doesn't receive calls and massages

What where the events leading up to this issue? does it have a Sim card? Anything else you can tell me would help out. First thing if it has sim card power off remove the Sim turn it on without the sim card, try and do anything where you get it to recognize there is no Sim card. Power off replace the Sim card it is clean without anything that would hinder a good connection, power it up and hopefully that works for you.

I have a Blckberry Curve 9300 and it is hardlocked. 0 unlocking attempts left. Could I have the count reset to 10 attempts again?

If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone probably displayed the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

Usually, but not always, if you go into your carrier's retail store and simply say, "My SIM card isn't working." the clerk will simply install a new SIM for free. Carry a driver's license with you because they want to be certain that the phone belongs to you.

All the best,

I purchased an "Unlocked" Verizon Blackberry Storm 9530. When I put the simm card in the Storm from my Blackberry Pearl I get an error message that says "sim card error"???

Hello Geady!
seems like your phone is still locked, you get "sim card error" when phone is locked. You can try unlocking it yourself, to obtain unlock code you can call Verizon tech support, or you can buy an unlock code online from here.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Unlocking my blackberry storm

While a Blackberry Storm will recognize an overseas GSM SIM card (such as Vodaphone) while traveling abroad, and will operate on the GSM band there, it will not recognize a US GSM SIM, such as those used by Cingular and T-mobile. The SOS on the screen signifies that the phone is not currently registered on the CDMA network (likely Verizon or Sprint) and that it can only make 911 calls as required by the FCC.
