Received a 'hand me down' Blackberry 8300 curve.
It worked fine with my sim card(Tele Comviq) at the beginning.
I did an upgrade and now I only see 'sos
' as a receiver.
I took battery out for phone to re-boot, still same nessage.
I took out sim card and put it back in, same message.
I tried my simcard in my other phone( a Sony) and even a Nokia and the card worked fine.
I tried putting a piece of paper behind sim card for better contact..same message.
I checked to see if phone locked--nope, not locked.
I checked my mobile Network on the phone and it has listed 'TELIA S' under data service. I am not sure if that is correct.
Reception is good with other phones but this is a problem, plus it doesnt read 'tele2comviq' on the screen as it should. I dont think it is the reception since it doesnt show what phone network I use on the screen.
When I took out the sim card the phone reads, 'insert simcard'.
When I put the card in, it looks for network and then 'sos
BUT if doesnt say 'insert simcard' so it MUST be reading something...
