Angry help me get a blackberry sim card plz 7100i

Please Login to Remove!

I got this brand new bb 7100i about 6 months ago but i did not add the blaberry plan until now (nextel didnt know i had a bb of course) but when they put me the service they told me that i needed to get the bb sim card because some of the features in in the web browser wouldnt work, actually alots of them r not working. WHERE CAN I GET A BB SIM CARD, the nextel stores do not seem to know either. plz help me

No such thing as a "blackberry" SIM card. You need a Yellow 64K card from any Nextel phone.

Haven't seen a white Nextel SIM before. Is it grey? Those work as well but they don't support MMS messaging.

What, wait a minute. You downgraded your SIM and it worked?

Nextel has multiple flavors of SIM cards. Some work better in BBs that others do.

Talking to mcarthy

yes but i thinki it had something to do with the options of the browser too they werent checked but according to nextel bbs r suposed to work with 64ks but now i will never now until i get more than 300 contacts because they switched my contacts to a 64ksim card so i rather just stayed here is a pain to changed it back (not really but...i had enouhg problems plus is working full force right now)
