Did you consider calling your carrier? When I have problems, I get on the phone with Verizon and, much the time they are able to sort things out. I can't speak about other carriers, but it is in their interest to have your phone working as it generates billing and keeps you from changing carriers. 73

That doesn't sound right. I guess it's possible that it's the SIM card. You're certain that you have a Blackberry data plan?
