| | Sim Card Rejected?

Just called VZW to have my SIM enabled in my STORM to allow for Global roaming. All seems to fine on their end, my account has been provisioned, and the SIM was activated, now:
- If I switch the band to 3G 2G the STORM tells me "SIM Card Rejected" on the home screen on top of the clock; I do understand the device is locked to work on CDMA only in the US and therefore should not connect to either T Mobile or AT&T, but shouldn't I get an error more like no network found or something like that?
- If I pop the same Verizon SIM card into an unlocked Blackbery Pearl, it gives me the message "SIM not provisioned2".
- If I pop an AT&T SIM into my Storm, it will say "Invalid SIM", which is obvious considering my STORM is locked to Verizon
What could this mean? Is my Verizon SIM bad, do I need a replacement SIM card? I need to ensure it is ready to work on GSM abroad at any time as I travel frequently. Any ideas anyone?
