| | Really Weird Issue after OS Update

Long time lurker, but first time posting...
Just updated my Curve to the newest versions of OS listed on the site. Did the OS update with no sim in, since i needed an active phone for work - popped my sim in, phone works great. Had email, internet, phone, etc, with no problems.
Long story short, my wife wants to switch from WinMo to blackberry, so I gave her my Curve (just got an 8820 from work). With her sim in, phone gets stuck in a resetting loop. 4 seconds of hourglass, 4 seconds of red LED. I've been searching for hours on how to fix this. Same thing happens with the Pearl and 8800. (Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, just want to get the curve fixed, she'll never use the other 2)
Just so you have all the info:
updated Curve to 188.8.131.52
Wiped handheld, so no 3rd party apps
Works fine with my SIM - older Cingular, non-3g sim
Hers is a newer 3g sim
tried powering on with radio off, no go
powers on with no sim installed fine
I've tried everything except wiping with jl_cmder, but didn't think that was necessary since the phone works with no sim and my sim installed. Any help here is greatly appreciated.
