Sounds like it is set for Smart Dialing, click the call buttong, then the menu button choose options and check the settings in smart dialing. It could be set for a different country, especially if you have been roaming recently

Keep continue with wrong password until six times, it will make your blackberry 8700G unlocked from old password. But you will lose all previous data on your phones after that blackberry unlocked and you can setup new password for your blackberry.

Will a boost mobile sim card work in this phone?


Unlocked BlackBerries will accept every modern sim I've ever tried so I expect so.

But unless the sim has BlackBerry internet/Email services, the phone loses most of the capabilities which make it a BlackBerry and you just end up with a bulky and basic dumbphone instead.

Invalid sim


1. (easyer way) When I got my Blackberry, I had to put it in a couple of times for it to work.

2. Buy a new sim card.
If this does not work, then check to see if it is unlocked.

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.

Sounds like the unit is locked or forbidden to work with your phone company. Ask the ebay seller which phone company the phone was bought from and contact them. They can provide you the code you need for a fee (if this is the situation).

Call barring


it that was the case, no.......what you can try to do, to be sure, try putting another sim card in the phone.....if that doesnt work, you will have to do a wipe of the handheld....it could have gotten a virus. in order to do that, go to options, security options, general settings, press the menu button and select wipe handheld
