Make sure you do a hard reboot by removing the battery. If it still doesn't work, its time to call your operator and get a new one.

Start by taking the battery out, then under the battery the SIM should be under there in a little tray like device. Put your finger on it, slide it back, then it should pop up a little, take the SIM card out. Blow in there to make sure there is no dust or dirt, after 15 or so seconds, slide the SIM back in, pop the battery in.

If that doesn't work.. try this on the main screen (I'm honestly not sure if this works on a 7250 since I've only played with Nextel bb) hold the ALT button (lower left hand corner) and press LGLG. A screen should pop up with a bunch of command lines, click the trackwheel in and it should say something on the extent of "Clear Log" or "Delete Log", do that, confirm. Then after it finishes exit out to the main screen. Pop the battery out, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, unpress the power button, pop the battery back in.

I'll try and troll this through-out the day.

7250's are CDMA. In other words -- no SIM card.

...and did it ever really work?

Something I did not know. Again, used to Nextel Blackberries and not Sprint one's (yet).
