Unhappy Blackberry 7290 Sim problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I have a 7290, unlocked (verified this, it's originally O2 UK, works fine with T-Mobile sim in it), but when I insert either of my 3 UK sims in it, it gives "Sim Card Error".

Software version is v4.10.351 (Platform 18.0.149) Kernel v3.8.3.7 which seems to be the latest available from O2 UK (I don't know if now it's unlocked I could get for example the Orange sw updates).

I'm pretty sure it's a sim card encoding thing (hutchinson is the parent co for 3 uk, and the sims work fine in most phones but not some really old phones) but I was wondering if anyone here had any advice 'cos I'd really prefer to use my contract sim (not that 3 do a bb plan, but I can at least use the local features) rather than the silly no-data payg sim.
