[Torch 9860] - Network indicates roaming "Rogers Wireless - Fido" with Fido SIM

[ Edited ]



I recently purchased a BlackBerry Torch 9860.


I have a Fido SIM card


When I insert my SIM, and I turn on cellular, the network says "Rogers Wireless - Fido" with the roaming triangle next to it.


Why is this the case and will I be charged roaming whenever I make a call or send an SMS?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


You need to check if your BB is unlocked or not...see this:

If, for instance, your BB is locked to Rogers, then when you try to use a Fido SIM, it may be having to run via the Rogers network to get to Fido. Or, if Fido has no coverage where you are, it may have to roam on Rogers to get to Fido.


As for billing, you have to talk to Fido and/or Rogers about that.


Good luck!
