If there is a sim card already in the phone, take it out and put it back in a few times to clean the contacts the sim card connect to. If there is no sim card, then you will have to get one from the carrier you plan to use
Okay, a SIM card only holds info like your phone number, contacts, etc. so the problem may be that there is a feature missing from your pre-paid account that needs to be adjusted by your wireless carrier. Unfortunately people make mistakes when setting up your data plan and what not so I would give them a ring and ask whats up. I'm assuming that it is the same carrier?
The 8330 Model is a CDMA phone and thus does not accept a SIM Card like a GSM BlackBerry would. So you can not but a prepaid Phone card or SIM card, but there are companies who now offer Prepaid Plans on the CDMA 8330 if you do not wish to activate a contract.
MetroPCS started the prepaid BlackBerry movement a little over a year ago when it launched the Curve 8330. The offering is far from perfect. First, it only works in MetroPCS’s legacy markets, so it won’t work in its AWS areas, which include New York City and Boston.
After it announced it’s Complete line of plans, T-Mobile also announced a prepaid BlackBerry plan.
The latest to offer prepaid BlackBerry services is Boost Mobile.
I am not sure where you live and what providers are available to you, but check with your local Carriers, to see what options are out there for your 8330.
It depends on what type of plan you want such as a Prepaid or Post-paid plan. Post paid plan is where you have so many minutes per month and you have data plans available as well. You might be able to go in to AT&T and ask how much pre-paid plans are and if they have internet useage on them you will be able to take that sim card out and put it in your iPhone. Other wise if there is no AT&T carrier in your area, you can unlock/jailbreak your iPhone and then you would be able to use it with any carrier that takes sim cards. I personally use QuickPwn, but if you are going to do this just make sure that you are NOT running 2.2.1 on the 3G as you will not be able to unlock the phone, and you will have to get a turbo sim in order for it to be unlocked. Hope this helps you out!
Carrier named on SIM card probably not same as Carrier this phone is locked too. If so, get correct carriers Sim Card. Carrier can be seen on powerup splash screen pic. Or, unlock phone.
Sim cards for all carriers can be found on ebay. They are usually pay-as-you-GO phone no contract SIMs. but once you activate SIM, just call carrier and switch your number and/or choose one of their minutes plans. Not problem. They change your number over the wireless, and your contract over the phone..
It depends on which carrier the prepaid was with.
if The original prepaid and your wifes plan are both with the same carrier then it should be no problem just swap the sim over.
eg ( telstra to telstra ) or Optus To optus.
If the v3 is an Optus predaid and your wifes sim is a telsra plan then it wont accept the sim as the carriers lock the prepaid phones to their network
