You should take it to your service provider and they should be able to diagnose the problem quickly and usually free. It sounds like a problem with the Sim Card but it could be the phone, but I would see if another card works. Let me know how this goes and if you have any further questions, please let me know

    You should try a different Sim card, if it works, then your original card is bad. If you take it to the service provider, I'm sure that they would help you out for free and try a different card in your phone.

Is the phone unlocked?

    simple way to see if it is unlocked is just put another carriers SIM in. Unlocked you'll make a call If nor you'll get a SIM error that simple .

    If it isn't unlocked then you'll have to pay and get it unlocked.

    Did you try out a different sim?

Doesnt Find Sim Card


Just chk if the handset is unlocked, then try putting the same SIM into a different hand set and check if you are getting the same error if you get the same then the SIM is faulty or else there may be some issue with the handset so please get in touch with a service provider.

I bought an unlocked blackberry 7290 RIM, can't get service


I am actually unsure what could have caused this. It might not be unlocked correctly or could have been damaged when the software was modified. But T-Mobile carried the BB7290 so if you can get ahold of the person who unlocked it for you I would ask for a branded T-Mobile phone.

Is it locked to Rogers?


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.

Please rate this assistance - I hope it is useful.

Unlock my blackberry 7290


Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.

Wnt let me make a call out


It sounds like the device was originally activated and worked with a Blackberry enterprise Server, where the administrator had voice calls blocked for the users, so that they did not run up bills - in other words, it was programmed just to do email. If this is the situation, there may not be a solution available to you.

Call your phone carrier and ask them to help - make sure you have the correct "plan"...
