BBM does not start over WIFI

I have a blackberry Torch with data plan in the country I live. I'm on vacations and I dont have international roaming however I can use the BBM when I connect to a wifi network. I removed the sim card of my phone to check another sim card and, when I put it back, the BBM didnt connect anymore. I restarted the phone and the wifi connection however still I cant get it connected to BBM . Does anyone have a clue how to get it working again?

Re: BBM does not start over WIFI

install original SIM and connect to carrier on edge or 3g to get the correct service books, be warned that charges might be applied when you do this as you are now roaming.
