Good morning,

I was wondering if anybady could help with a issue i am having, 

A  friend of mine owns a blackberry with a Telecom Sim card,
On Saterday night he took the Sim card out of his Blackberry and placed it in a I-Phone, the sim card worked in the i-phone,

He took the sim card out and placed it back in his Blackberry and it would not connect to the network, wondering if it was the sim card that had the issue or the blackeberry he placed in Nokia to see if that would work

However it still would not connect, and still will not, we have done network resets* and nothing is working any advice?

Try putting it back in the blackberry and waiting for 30min to an hour, it should connect.

When you take the sim card out of the iphone it must be powered down first or you will get loads of errors.

That is odd, does the simcard still work in the iphone?

I had this issue awhile ago but it did eventually latch on.

When you put the SIM back in the Blackberry do a Host Routing table update under options and advanced options

When you are in the option click on the Blackberry key "update now "
