Been a browser of these forums for a long time now. But finally got round to registering - expecially since I have come across an issue I cant fix.
I have recently got a 8310 from a Business contact of mine. The problem is it seems to have originated from Portugal! Everything was fine, I ran set up and switched it all over to English and removed the rest of the languages.
I then used the 'Switch Device' function on Desktop Manager to bring across all my emails, outlook appointments, contacts, BES setttings etc etc. That went fine.
However, I then went and put in my Orange SIM card and it rejected it. 'Invalid Sim Card'. This is a pain as this is SIM I have my BES subscription on. To begin with I thought the SIM might have gone faulty as it is an old works one. So I through in my personal O2 SIM card in the back which is BIS enabled - again 'Invalid SIM Card'.
I checked the Network settings in the 'Manage Connections' option and it seems the netork is locked to Vodafone UK. Even when trying to manually select the network I need.
I have a lot of contacts in the mobile industry and I drop a friend of mine an email with the IMEI and he has checked the device and it is definately NOT a Vodafone branded handset so apparently it should accept any of the SIM cards I put in it.
Could the issue be because of the fact it originates from Portugal? Or is there something else I can try?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more information please ask.
P.S I have also tried multiple resets and wipes also.
