Default Please Help Sim Card weirdness

Please Login to Remove!

I bought and installed a kingston 1 meg sim card, followed directions posed on another thread. All is well. When I connect the BB 8830 to the computer the sim card comes up as another drive. I transferred an album to the sim card. Removed from computer. I start the media player and the mp3 files are recognized and play fine.

Here is the problem, When I go to options, advanced options, sim card it says NO VALID SIM CARD. WHY. I can play the mp3 files no problem from the sim yest the phone will not recognize the card???? I tried formatting fat 32 from phone and computer. Still not being recognized (sort of because it still plays the MP3 files on the simm) PLEASE HELP

I think you are getting the memory card and the sim card confused. The sim card is what GSM phones use and the GSM part of the 8830. While the memory card is what is holding your music.

Default oops

Jonbost you are correct! So the media card just stores media files period? If you goto your address book open it then select options, you have an option to SIM phone book. That dose not mean you can copy the phone book to the media card correct? If thats the case then you are right I was confused.

What can I copy from my phone memory to the card memory???

Thanks

Yes, I get the same message on my 8830 "SIM CARD: No Valid SIM Card" and I have various pictures and music on mine and works fine.

If you have a SIM card installed selecting the SIM phone book will display the phone numbers stored on the SIM card (not the micro SD media card). The new card comes with a Global Support phone number already stored there.
