You got to provide more details about your device: model, service provider of BB device, your service provider, error message the BB exhibits upon using your SIM...

Japan has their own hybrid format for cell phones. That includes Blackberrys. Yours might be a Japan-only model.

I would imagine that any high-end Japanese market smartphone would be equipped with GSM frequencies and that shouldn't pose as a problem in Europe . . . for example, the 8707h is equipped with 850/900/1800/1900 Mhz GSM plus the 2100 Mhz W-CDMA
