Ok see...i bought a BB bold 9000 from United Arab Emirates (UAE)..and i got a used one..the mobile works in UAE but when i go for vacation to Pakistan..it shows the full signal and shows GSM but im unable to make or receive any calls..only wireless helps me to browse internet... Jus to add i insert the local sim of Pakistan which is known as UFONE Carrier . The same sim works in my other mobile(nokia and samsung) and works in my freinds BB Bold 9000 too..but doesnt work in ma BB bold 9000. It only works for me when im in UAE. Ive shown dese problem to many mobile shops and they are jus cluelsss :S

putting another SIM in your BB ? is the device unlocked? or is UFONE a sister company to your original company?

Don't ever take an expensive phone like blackberry to ANY mobile shop in pakistan.I have never seen SUCH illiterate and pure DUMB people ever anywhere else.They think they are experts but reality is they don't even know how to open a blackberry.My friend showed his bb to a mobile repairer in Pakistan and he coud not even open it

About your problem.My guess is a MEP lock but you said it's unlocked.So I will tell you to search around for it and then do something about it.

You said the device was used, correct? That is more than likely the problem.

I would go to Axiom Telecom and get a new 9700. It's a much better device, and Axiom has good prices.

That's irrelevant. You bought a used device, so being unlocked does not mean it will work. Go buy a new one. Seriously. It WILL work in the UAE and PK, and you will be much happier.
