Having a second hand shop here in South Africa, I obtained a few Second hand BlackBerry phones from China. Although these phones are open to all South African networks, they cannot connect to any network by phoning the necessary code (e.g. *100# to obtain Voacom airtime balance etc.) You can however dial in to the network and follow voice prompts in order to obtain airtime balance. A local cell phone repair shop diagnosed the problem as:... " It is an overseas phone".
Any advice (as simplfied as possible !) from out there ?
