Default Help! SIM card rejected...

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone. Please pardon the ignorance here, but I have an usual situation and was hoping someone could help.

Here it goes.

I was given my 8300 from my work before I left my position. Basically, I knew that my service would be cut off and would be using my iPhone for basic functions, but I was hoping that I could still PIN to PIN other blackberry users.

Now, I see that my SIM card is rejected and I have an SOS in the upper right corner. I have unlocked the security and reset the PIN, but still nothing.

Do I need to buy a new SIM card? Is that possible? Do I have to reactivate service in order to just PIN someone?

Many thanks!

Yes, you would have to have an active SIM on an account which has an active BB data plan in order to PIN.
