Angry Bb 8820 - Furious Sim Card Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I'm using a blackberry 8820 and my simcard has been working fine as it should, but this morning i looked at my phone and it read at the top where the network carrier usually has it's name and it said "SIM not allowed" and the phones signal was "SOS" in red.
My Friends simcards work in my blackberry fine without the "SIM not allowed" message.
I tested my simcard in my mothers phone and it worked fine on her motorola.
But it just shows as "SIM not allowed" i've also tried connecting to a network manually but no luck.
Is there a Solution?

i posted this earlier but had no real answers. one said that i should contact my provider. I Did this and they just sent me a new simcard with my same number.. I JUST PUT IT IN AND IT STILL SAYS.. "SIM NOT ALLOWED" THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS!

i must have blocked my own sim card number on my BB..PLEEEEEEEEASE can someone tell me how to work my problem?!?

You should probably have the SIM card replaced.

You don't need to change numbers to change the SIM. Visit and Orange shop and tell them you need a new SIM.

quote the part where i said "one said that i should contact my provider. I Did this and they just sent me a new simcard with my same number.. I JUST PUT IT IN AND IT STILL SAYS.. "SIM NOT ALLOWED" THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS!"

i got a brand new simcard.. but the same number.. still broke. so i've blocked my number somehow..
