"Sim Card Rejected" Need help! (blackberry storm 9500)

[ Edited ]

Hello Smiley Happy

Right, firstly I am really NOT technically minded, so please bare with me!

I got my Blackberry Storm 9500 today, and it has a Vodafone sim inside it (The phone itself is also on Vodafone network). But it just says "Sim card rejected" all the time. I also have NO signal whatsoever apart from "SoS"...Could this be why it is rejecting the sim? I do live next to the woods and some providers just get awful signal here.

I am getting the phone unlocked on Friday to go to GiffGaff (which was what my old phone was on)....will getting the phone unlocked solve the "Sim card rejected" error?

I would really appreciate some help/advice! Thanks!
