Kia Ora MissNZ,

Are your other phones in the house are with Vodafone or Telecom?

You might need to check if your 8100 BB is unlocked. And are you using BIS on your pearl?

Above 2 took words right outta my mouth. Also make sure to download the correct service books once you get the SOS problem solved otherwise your internet, txting, mms will be severely crippled.

Invalid SIM card = Locked device on a network for which the device is locked to another.

SOS = Normally means no signal or bad SIM card.

I would suggest you get a SIM swap from your carrier

Its Vodafone and the sim works fine in my LG KU990 and other vodafones around the house
How do you know if its unlocked or not im going to the vodafone shop in the morning to see what they say hopefully they can fix it .
I have a 2gb memory card in there to so its not a memory thing.

I was wondering if your Pearl working fine?

Did Vodafone shop able to help you to fix this "sos" happening on your Pearl?
