    Was looking at my unlocked TMO 9700 today and all of a sudden it went to INVALID SIM CARD and SOS!

    I took out the sim card and cleaned it but no fix. I installed the sim card in my 9100 and same problem.

    When the phone first boots up it gets a quick connection to Blackberry, downloads a few emails/bbms and then goes to INVALID SIM CARD and SOS.

    Any thoughts on why the sim card is shot or what I can do? I am overseas for 2 months and TMO will not send me a new sim card overseas!

    I suggest buying a prepaid SIM for the time being until you can get to tmobile for a replacement SIM.

    I had this problem with my 9700 (sos and Invalid SIM card) I tried with another SIM and that didn't fix the problem. I sent it back to blackberry (waranty),
    they fixed it, the problem was the internal antenna. Good luck

    Now it says SIM CARD ERROR:3

    I dont think it is a problem with the 9700 because I get the same problem in my 9100.

    This. You'll need to either get a prepaid SIM or a warranty exchange if the sim doesn't work at all. Is your blackberry unlocked?
