Question 7100x, Foreign SIM Cards, and BES

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings all.

We have a number of Blackberry devices in use at the moment (around 50), using BES v4.0. (I believe). One of our users in Hungary (our main organisation is in the UK, where all of our servers are located) has been sent a Blackberry 7100x, originally supplied by O2, with the unlocking process completed to allow other SIM cards to be put in.

Due to the cost of calls, the decision was made to allow the overseas users to use their mobile phone SIM cards in their Blackberries, with the Blackberry function enabled by their local provider. This has caused two problems when we try it howwever.

1. When the new Hungarian (in the case) SIM is put into the Blackberry, the Enterprise Activation option disappears, both from the front screen and the Options Menu. If the original SIM is put back in, the option reappears and all works as it should.

2. The users messages folder displays their text messages stored on the SIM card. If we do manage to get it activated, will these messages be overwritten by the activation process?

Sorry for the long-windedness of my post. Any ideas anyone?
