Hi all,
When I swap out my working pre paid Vodafone SIM for the 2 degrees SIM the phone goes into SOS call only mode, I can see the 2Degrees SIM in the phone's menu, but can't make calls / texts.....arrgghh, (putting the VF SIM back in and it's fine) what happened, it used to work.  Thanks!


Imported / Unlocked Blackberry Pearl 8100

Have discovered another problem. BB 8100 is still working fine in CHCH but when I leave town it won't go onto the Vodafone network! EDGE turns to SOS. Even when I change network selection to Vodafone it won't connect. Luckily I have a spare Vodafone SIM and am able to swap it over to get coverage.

Can anyone help me get 2Degrees nationwide?!

Thanks!

I've heard of this before from somebody who had 2degrees manually selected, since you're not connecting to 2d the phone would't roam on VF.

Try changing the network settings to auto after you have registered with 2degrees.
