I have been searching high and low and cannot find an answer. I found one close, here in blackberryforum but it had no resolution.

I bought a cingular blackberry from ebay this week, and now when i put my sim card in it, it searches for the network, then goes to no service. It's not even getting service for a little bit.

I checked the network settings, it says *none* and this is NOT a changeable option. I used my exsisting desktop manager to wipe it clean, and loaded 4.1 on it, but this didnt help either.

This is not an unlocked phone, I had the imei checked and it is a cingular phone. The phone was also used on cingular with its previous owner. I DO have a blackberry plan, although i just want to use this as a gsm/sms device, I added the blackberry plan thinking it would help get it signal, it didnt.

Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
