Default Unlocked BB Bold 9700 wont connect to Bell Network HELP!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

I recently received a BB Bold 9700 that has been unlocked and I can't seem to get it to connect to the Bell Network. We have a sim card activated and it just wont find the network. Any suggestions as what is wrong or a step that I might have missed?

Thanks CP

Are you saying it won't find the cellular network for calls, or that it won't find the data network for BlackBerry data services?

If it won't find the Bell cellular network it may be that you're not in an area with coverage. If that is not the problem, it may not be unlocked.

If you want BlackBerry data services, you have to go to the Bell BIS site and enter your PIN & IMEI to associate the data plan with your particular unit.
