Not recognizing SIM card?

Not sure if I'm posting this in the rgiht spot but it was worth a shot Smiley Wink

 

Heres my problem;

Recently I unlocked my Blackberry Curve 8520 which was previously locked to Rogers. I have a pay as you go plan on a Telus SIM card that I'd like to be using in my 8520, However when I boot up my 8520 with the Telus Sim inside... it doesn't seem to be recognizing it at all. I'm fairly certain I unlocked it properly which could be a common error in this situation. Do I need to sync my Telus SIM with the phone somehow or is my SIM possibly damged? 

need help.

Re: Not recognizing SIM card?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!!

 

Anything is possible...start here please:

That includes I believe instructions to verify if your device is properly unlocked. But, given the symptoms you describe, I'd guess that either your SIM or your SIM card reader is the cause...of course, at an internet distance, that can't be anything better than a SWAG.

 

Good luck!
