I have question, where your old owner phone live? Did he/she lived in the same country with you? Just for your information same carrier network from one country is different with other country and you must unlock your phone if you want to use another sim card.
To unlock blackberry 7290 network from rogers you will need a blackberry unlock code that can be purchased at third party sites.

If it is set for one service supplier it should work on that sim - I suspect its locked on another supplier - question the seller on ebay - if he is ingenuine you can always leave bad feedback.

I accidentally dropped my rogers blackberry cell phone and now it wont turn on.How can I fix it ???


Try removing the battery and re-seating it. Then try and power it on. If it still does not power on, then you will most likely have to make an insurance claim on the phone.

New cellular phone recommendations


Although BlackBerry is a fairly reputable company, the complaints that you describe above are quite common, and most without fixes.
If you want a BlackBerry, consider the 8220 BlackBerry Flip. Better predictive text engine and none of the complaints you mentioned above. I think those are available well within your price range if you're willing to do a new two year agreement.

you posted this in blackberry forum. If the code is on the phone you will probably have to call the provider for help on this one.

Telus Blackberry 8830 World Edition with Rogers SIM?


Unfortunately, you can't use the current Storm model on Rogers. The Telus network is CDMA (Rogers is GSM), which means Telus' wireless products do not use SIM cards :-(
If it's any consolation, there is supposed to be a Blackberry Storm released soon that will use SIM cards and could be used on Rogers.
