I recently bougt a 3g playbook from ebay and till my great dismay it's not working at all.
After I started it, saw there were no in built applications, only one thing on the tablet and that was the internet browser.
Where is everything and how can I get it back.
And second, after I inserted the simcard, the simcard was not recognized.
What can I do to solve this problem?

So-called "unlocked" 3G and LTE playbooks are only supported if you have a SIM from a company that has an agreement with Blackberry. Unlocked = unsupported = no updates without the right SIM.
You have some limited options.
Get a SIM from a suitable canadian company on ebay.ca. It does not even need to be activated.
Or find a leaked version of 188.8.131.523 OS, but that will disable the cellular activity and make it wifi only. There may be a leaked version of 184.108.40.2068 around. I am not allowed to direct you to leaked versions of the OS under forum rules.
You might like to try and debrick it using desktop software. no idea what OS version you will get, if any.
You might like to return it to the vendor.
My advice remains - Avoid unlocked cellular playbooks. Avoid 3g Playbooks as they have never been supported.
By the way, any Canadians recommend a suitable SIM for this?

please don't use leaked version just goto BB service center they help you...because if you install leaked version then it might be create prob. for you in feature
Why don't we just tell people to go to BB service center for every problem, then we don't need a forum.
Hey that's a point, why do I waste my time?
