SOURCE: Blackberry pearl- initialization problem

I had the same problem and find the answer on other forum http://forums.crackberry.com/f85/huge-problem-about-initialization-failed-sos-113323/ I used some scotch tape and worked perfect for me, the idea is to make the sim card a litle "fat" to fit the contacts.

Good luck

SOURCE: SIM card registration failed, whats wrong?

The first thing to try is put the SIM into another handset - if you get the same error message on that, the SIM is blocked. If it works in another phone, the most likely explanation is that the IMEI of your phone has been blocked by the network.

SOURCE: want to use local gsm sim in my blackberry 9530 storm

Looks like your phone still locked for particular network and you must unlock it first, before you can use your local sim card. To unlock blackberry storm, you must have blackberry unlock code for verizon network and you can purchase that code at third party sites on internet.

Blackberry red light then reboots!


This behavior indicates that no applications are installed on the BlackBerry smartphone.

CAUSE: The Application Loader tool in BlackBerry® Desktop Manager removed existing
applications from the BlackBerry smartphone, but failed to install new applications.
RESOLUTION:-
1) Verify that BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer.
2) If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to a laptop computer using a docking station,disconnect the docking station from the laptop computer and connect the BlackBerry smartphone directly to the laptop computer.
3) If a third-party application uses the same communications port as the BlackBerry Desktop Software, close the third-party application.
4) If you use a USB adapter to connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a serial port, temporarily connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a USB port.
5) In the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, double-click Application Loader.
6) Follow the Application Loader tool prompts to install the BlackBerry Device Software.
