Need help with sim card switch

I am trying to change the sim card in my bb ... it s from the same company & is only being done as i need to move it from a broken iphone 3gs. When I put it in the bb I can make phone calls & have web access but my bbm doesn't work at all !!! I have tried resetting , updating the os , are just some of the things I have tried to have this sim card work in this phone. If anyone has any ideas on how to make this switch pls pls pls help !! 

I am with fido , it is a unlocked bb from Rogers & has been working wiith my org fido chip since I got it. I am trying to put a different fido ship in. 

Thanx in advance!!

Re: Need help with sim card switch


last i knew an iphone SIM wont work and you need to get a new one

 

you might have to call your carrier to get a BlackBerry data plan added to your service

 

 

you can try this

 

On the handset, go to:

For OS5 and 4.x
Options - Advanced Options - Host Routing Table
and click Register now, and escape back to the home page.

For OS6 and higher
in options, device , advanced, host routing table, click on menu and choose register now.

Wait 2 minutes and see if registration to network happens.

Resend your service books from your carrier BIS site:
From your handheld device: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB15402

Go to the Personal Email Set Up icon and log in. Then under Help!, select Service Books, then select Send service Books.

 

 

 

From your desktop PC: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB02830
North American Carriers
- scroll down to select your carrier
WorldWide Carriers - Find your carrier on the list

3. With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot. This reboot, even if you have already done this, is often needed to install the service books.
