Default Rogers Issue -- Phone not allowed : MM6 error

Please Login to Remove!

there have been a lot of calls about an MM6/SOS error lately. I just found out it is an issue with the 4V1 series sim cards. The SIM card simply need to replace with one that doesn't start with 893027204010XXXXXXXX as there is a bad batch of SIM cards.

Yes you can get a credit on your account for getting a new SIM for this issue.

Hope this helps people that have been Wondering.

Thanks for the useful post. I just searched for this issue after getting a Mulitformat card to share between my 9800 and iPad.

This is exactly the issue I'm having right now. I bought a 9700 off of craigslist and the guy who sold it claims that the phone's been unlocked (and it does seem unlocked when I look in the options - adv op - sim card - MEPD).

But, when I put in my Rogers sim card, I get the above "Phone not allowed mm6" error.

I tried going to different Rogers store, and they all seem to have the sim cards with the above mentioned numbers as prefix. They say all the sim cards they receive are like that (and I looked).

Is there a way to solve this? This is really bugging me - if the phone was indeed stolen and barred from the network, I don't want to waste my time on this..

You can also try calling Rogers "Blackberry Technical Support" Department and ask them to send you a new SIM Card.
