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.

    I stand corrected...I did a little homework and found out that the information I gave you earlier applies to the 8830 "worldphone", but not the storm. The storm can in fact do GSM in the US as well as abroad. You do need an unlock code from Verizon to unlock the phone, or you may want to try a 3rd party company that may be able to unlock the phone for a T-mobile SIM.

    Check out the link below for more information.

    Since I'm assuming you are not a Verizon customer, you may not have much luck getting the code out of them. Also, since the phone is not supported by T-mobile, they probably won't be much help either. The phone hacking sites such as howardforums.com, crackberry.com and others may be of assistance. Unfortunately it isn't just as simple as plugging in your T-mobile SIM card. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    Have you tried switching the network in "network connections"?

    From the home screen, click on "Manage Connections"

    Click on "Mobile Network Options"

    Change "network technology" to "GSM/UMTS"

    Sorry if this is too basic or you have already done this, but I am trying to make sure we haven't overlooked anything.

Although my advice to you would sound quite late but it is worth for your future mobile phones. Whenever you a blackberry, it is very important to choose the right unlocking code provider if you want to prevent it from technical faults and problems.

It just need to reset your phone and upgrade your blackberry os. Some blackberry phones even already unlocked still have default seting software from old network provider that's why in this example your blackberry, even already unlocked using blackberry storm 9530 unlock code your booting screen still show verizon logo. No big problem it's usually happened when you unlock blackberry phones.
