Not sure, but I wouldn't expect you to be able to register on the Voda BIS with the Voda SIM unless that SIM was enabled with the BB service.
I would suggest you
1. Call T-Mobile & get to their second line support. I fear they won't want to support a Voda device with Voda firmware on the T-Mobile network, officially.
2. If they can't sort you and there's indeed an issue with 'pre-registration' of the device, then try RIM themselves. RIM Europe are based in the UK, and might be able to 're-map' the PIN to be acceptable on the T-Mobile BIS.
3. If neither works, and you don't want want the hassle, make sure your insurance company know. Either they're familiar with the issue (and know it's not a problem) or they need to be "educated" that a BB isn't like a 'normal' phone and unlocking it and swapping SIMs may not 'cut the mustard'. It's their problem if they want to get arsey about where they buy their phones to save a little money. In this case they may just have to bite the bullet and get a 8700g for you from T-Mobile UK. To be honest, you may find T-Mobile may be able to supply a 7290 from 'warranty' stock or the like (as there will be many out in the market still under warranty), which possibly isn't the ideal result you want...
