    If you are running Leaked .85 you are one of the many having this problem.

    Read my thread in the Hints and FAQ section to fix this problem:

    It will work, some people who say it didn't work, didn't follow the directions. Some also just removed the SIM card but you don't need to do that if you disable following the instructions.

    Angry Sim Card Rejected Error Message!!!!

    Hi Eveybody,
    I have been using this device roughly 10 days which I got a gift from my buddy, It's a Blackberry Storm 9500 Vodafone UK device which I unlocked it just fine. I have been using this phone with my operator for at least 10 days and all of a sudden SIM CARD REJECTED error started to appear on the very top of the screen. I pretty much tried everything so far, removing battery and sim card didn't fix the problem. I wiped out everything and I gave it a shot, same thing.. I tried 5 different SIM cards from different operators, what's happening was, the logo of the service provider and the full signal strength icon appeared on the screen for 2-3 secs and this stupid error message came on again. I am desperately looking for any kind of help, blackberry becomes troubleberry and It's startinn to get n my nerves... Thanks in advance..

    As long as you don't plan to leave the country or unlock your phone to use an another network, I would just remove the sim card. There is no real reason to have it in.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for your quick response but this is not a storm 9530, this is storm 9500 and we dont use cdma technology here in europe so your solution only applies to the people living in states, if you have any other solution, I'd really appreciate it... Regards.

    Well, I now know for a fact that if you try to get a signal over Virginia at 35,000 feet you will get a "sim card rejected". Changing back to 1XEV from global fixed it.
    I don't care if it is working....I'm still gonna mess with it!

    What is the downside when it says this? I have .85 and it says this with me, and like the OP i too just turn the phone off and reset it.


    And also one more thing, if i choose to go over seas, will this phone work with a SIM Card from carriers down there(bolivia)? Tahts how it works right?

    Another option....

    Mine started doing this out of the blue and got worse. I finally found the problem.... I had loosened the two torx screws for a fix to the screen click. Apparently they loosened up a bit which made for a loose fit for the SIM card. Once I snugged those a wee bit the problem went away.

    Something to consider....

    Iseegreen: You say "a sim card error". What is the exact wording of the error? Is it "Sim card rejected" or something else? Also what O.S. are you running?

    Im also guessing you are no longer running .85 since its been 6 months since that OS has been in service?
