Just wanted to let you know that I have my daughter's blackberry up and running. This is the second year I borrowed her outdated phone to use in Costa Rica. Last year I went to an ICE outlet and it worked fine. This year I went to a convenience store and you know the results. I took it back yesterday and guess what - they had it in sideways. I was very happy. I still have trouble typing on it (don't think I have Blackberry fingers).
Thanks again for your help. I really thought it was a problem in the phone. We seniors need lots of help (just ask my daughter).

So please get back in touch with me asap.
Hi and Welcome to the Community!
If you are attempting to use this device on a different carrier from your mate, and that carrier is the original carrier for the device, then it's likely that the device was never unlocked from it's original carrier. Refer:
Further, hopefully your mate carried out all that is in this KB:
It is also possible that the carrier you are attempting to use it on uses radio technologies that the device does not support...you need to talk to the carrier to find out if their network supports your specific BB device.
Good luck and let us know!
