I have a Rogers unlocked Blackberry 8520, I tried putting a Fido sim inside -- all it says is SOS, when I do a manual scan the scan picks up Fido but still says SOS! What's wrong?
It's a brand new SIM card, haven't activated it yet. It's weird because my 9780 gets service for any un-activated sim Bell/Telus/Rogers/Fido/Whatever. This one wont... I think it's because it's 2g and only has EDGE, but Fido and Rogers still have an Edge network right? It was working fine with Rogers last week.
I put the "Ho" back in "HOFO"
This is what happened when I try to activate the sim!
"We are currently experiencing technical difficulties and cannot complete your request at this time. If you require immediate assistance, please call 1 888 481-FIDO (3436) and a customer service representative will be happy to assist you. Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience."
Happens when I try to scan for numbers!
Very simple to solve, simply go to a store or call the 1-888 number and get the sim card activated. not sure what your trying to acomplish by using a phone with an unactivated sim card? its like having a paper weight
Got the SIM activated, but it's still saying SOS -- do I need to add money to it in order for it to get service and by service I mean simply connect to the network.
Nevermind, needed to reset the phone. Does Fido EDGE come in as roaming? It has the triangle by Fido, weird.
