Default Sim card problem

Please Login to Remove!

I have a curve 9300 that used to be locked to t-mobile (UK). I unlocked the phone so I can put my Swedish sim (telia) in the phone for my holiday. When I first put the Swedish sim in and it says Telia on top of the display I got a text from Telia welcoming me to the UK. After that when I try to send a text I get "retries exceeded" and when I try to make a call I get "no service currently available". I have checked the sim in another phone and it works fine. I've also checked in the mepd menu to make sure it's unlocked. When I try to register the phone under Host Routing Table I get 'Registration message sent!' but nothing comes back. Will my phone work when I take it to Sweden and connect it on Telias network (not roaming) or is it something else I need to do to make the phone work. Btw I don't need any of my data services to work in Sweden ie email and surfing, all I want to be able to do is call and text. I have sw 6.0 Bundle 2534 (v6.0.0.570) if that makes a difference. I really hope someone can help me as I'm going in a couple of days and I don't want to use my old phone.

Sounds like the carrier detected the Blackberry and either blocked it or because you dont have a BB data plan blocked it. A call to the carrier might help.

Unfortunately not, I called them already and they told me that although some of the data functions will not work calling and texting will.

It is probably because you are roaming. Take another phone just in case.
