Re: sos

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Here is a KB that discusses that error:

  • KB03448 Network status indicator shows "SOS" on the BlackBerry smartphone

Hopefully it contains something useful! There also are multiple existing threads on this site that discuss that exact error...your review of those might prove useful, and a search of this site, using the error message, error code, or symptom, should reveal all applicable existing threads to you.

Good luck and let us know!
