We've seen cases where you may have to perform a reset on the BlackBerry Dev Alpha (hold down power + volume keys) a few times for it to pick up the sim card.  Give that a try.

Re: Dev Alpha not recognizing sim card . >>BIG ISSUE

correct !  what annoys me is that the dev team send me an email that the original sim that came with the phone in orlando had expired and that i could purchase a new one from att which i did by signing a 2 year contract.. due to my schedule i need wireless to test and deploy my apps...

Re: Dev Alpha not recognizing sim card . >>BIG ISSUE

So does anything happen once the SIM card is inserted?  Does it still show that no sim card is present?  Or does that icon disappear but it's unable to use the cellular connection?

Re: Dev Alpha not recognizing sim card . >>BIG ISSUE

I have the same problem.. I tried several times to insert it always after powering off the device... no luck...

 

Today I tried to remove it and insert it will trunned on... The menu (UP slide down status menu) blinks to a diferent message, but its fast... it said somthing about "cellular" but I couln't see the full text, I'll keeo trying.

In any case it always ends up with the "SIM" not detected!
