Blackberry phones showing invalid sim.

Any ideas....phone showing 'invalid sim' so therefore out of action....same in 3 different blackberry phones yet ok when put onto a non blackberry. Hubby's work phone so no access to emails, contacts etc without sim working properly. Thanks in advance. Assuming we need to get provider to replace sim?

Re: Blackberry phones showing invalid sim.

Hello! if the sim card is old, you might need replacement. A sim card error message that doesnt fix with a soft or hard startup, usually indicates problem with sim card itself.  Do you know if the sim card is 32k or 64k? The only difference between the two (from what I know) is that the 64k can automatically detect stronger network. If i were you, I d contact my carrier to replace sim.

Not sure which tbh. It's nearly 2 years old so I guess replacement will be the answer, will get work onto it & report back. Thank you.
