Hey stulsidas,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

What version of BlackBerry 10 software are you using?  Go to settings>About to find this information.  Also have you tried a different SIM card in the BlackBerry Z10?

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Cheers.

Hey stulsidas,

Thanks for the question.

 

This definitely sounds like a network related issue.  If you tried a different SIM card and you're seeing the same issue, then I would suggest contacting your point of sale for exchange options as there is an activation issue.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Blackberry Z10 - Mobile Network wont switch on

Hi, I had the same issue and it took me a while to find on 3 information on how to fix this. What you should definitely try before contacting Orange, if you haven't already done so, is to power off your phone with the new SIM in it, let it sit for a bit, then turn it on again. Your SIM should work after this, although I had to do a battery pull while it was on its first full charge

Re: Blackberry Z10 - Mobile Network wont switch on

Might a good idea to go into the phone shop and let them activate the Sim on the phone.

If the phone is locked to a network, then you'll need to register the Sim in store, this should of been done before you left the store.
