Hi,

The message you are getting from your phone indicates that no sim is present in your phone,perhaps you have inserted the sim in a wrong manner, hence the phone does not recognize the presence of the sim card.

Here is the solution;

1.Remove the back cover of the phone and remove the battery respectively,

2.Afterwards,re-insert the sim card in a manner indicated by an arrow located beside the sim port,or as described by the user manual.

3.Ensure you turn on the radio connection,which is located in the manage connection settings in the main menu.

Problem solved


Have a nice day...

Hi is your blackberry mobile not accepting your 3 network sim in it this might happen if your phone is locked to some other network provider then it wont accept 3 network sim until you unlock it ..SOS on the screen signifies that the phone will allow only emergency calls ...You can easily unlock your phone using online providers like UnBBLock.com here they are rendering network unlock code for all blackberry mobile models at reliable cost ...You first check that whether the code is available for your mobile model ,country and network provider .If yes then pay for it and unlock your phone then freely use it with any GSM sim ...

My Mobile Network reads SOS


switch off your blackberry, remove the back cover and battery, and remove the sim card. Replace it after about one minute and it should not read SOS anymore.
If it still reads SOS, insert your sim card into another cellphone to see if it also reads SOS in a different phone. If it does, you need to call the company you bought the sim card from.
Eg; if it's an MTN sim card, call MTN; if it's Vodacom, call Vodacom etc.

Call block options or software (free) for BB Curve 8330


Nope, the call blocks are handled by the switching hardware the cell provider uses. You can set your bb to block text messages, multimedia messages, pin messages, blackberry internet services, and enterprise email, but that's it.

No message icon on the home screen.


You can try this: While you are in the main menu, click the menu button (at the right of the green call button), and select the "Show All" (can be different according to your phone language), after you do that, your messages, and other hidden icons should be seen as gray icons. Now you can unhide the icons you want, then you can unselect the "Show All" option again.

Sos appears on the screen


What kind of phone are you using? It is probably a GSM and you don't have the sim card in it or the sim is not properly installed. Until the phone can read the sim card, you can only make emergency calls.
