Just a couple of dumb questions from a NOOB. I just picked up an unlocked Rogers Bold 9000 and put in the SIM card from my Telus 8830. However, the phone doesn't "see" any networks other than Rogers.
1) Is it the SIM card that causes the phone to "see" networks? Or should I be able to see the telus/bell hsdpa network without a functioning SIM card?
2) Should the SIM card from my 8830 work? If not, how do I "activate" the SIM card once I purchase it from telus? From what I can gather from the website it seems as though I have to order a new data plan to activate it. I just want to use my existing voice/data plan but with the new "handset". Am I hooped?
Thanks in advance!
