Hey! Major problem and I am banging my head against a brick wall.
Basically I have just joined giffgaff. I have a bold 9900 unlocked and since joining it keeps saying sim not allowed. BUT when switching to 2G and doing a battery pull it works, but as soon as I select 3G it doesnt even after a battery pull and reset.
I have tried a full reset, replacing the software, other sims, reboots, manually selecting the network, checking coverage NOTHING is working.
It is pretty pointless having a 3G phone and being able to use it only on 2G.
Had a nose to check for an old network lock thats all clear, Network within engineering settings is showing CDMA, ROM is NOT detected.

Thank you for getting back to me. I have just switched from Orange to giffgaff, silly me I should have registered saying carrier giffgaff.
I will get in touch directly with giffgaff and see what they have to say. But looking at the community forum there are a lot without problem with the same BB.
I am hoping it is something simple and not a hardware problem.
Thanks again x
