Changing SIM on Blackberry 8310 - phone powers down

I've given my 8310 to my daughter but when she enters the unlock code for her SIM, the phone switches off.  It's fine with no SIM fitted.  Is there a lock between my mobile SIM and the IMIE which prevents use of another SIM in the handset ?

I haven't heard of any such lock in BlackBerry.

 

If the device is unlocked then it should accept the any GSM SIM card. Please let whether you face any issue with your own SIM card? Is you daughter's SIM card provisioned for BlackBerry service?

Thanks for your reply.

 

We both use SIMs provided by the O2 company in the UK.  O2 advised me to phone the Blackberry helpline (in UK) but it is no longer in use.  There's no issue with my own SIM card.
