    So I have a South African vodacom sim card that is on a contract that comes with the monthly airtime and BIS. It also came with a BB curve 9320. My dad gave me his BB Bold 9930 from the USA on verizon. I had the phone unlocked. When I put the south africa sim card in the bold it opens the phone and finds vodacom signal. It picks up the sim card I'd number but there is no phone number attached to it. Also when I try to make a phone call or try to dial *100# which should tell me how much air time I have it says call redirected and its disconnected. It also still displays my dads old numer under "my number" on the screen. Also there is no internet services so it isn't picking up either the sim card or the contract. Even if I didn't have any airtime when I dialed *100# it should go through and say 0.00 airime but it doesn't connect at all. Any ideas?

    Is your current carrier a CDMA carrier or a GSM carrier? I think the 9930 needs to be sut up for roaming to use the SIM and you may also have limited functionality.

    You have to change the settings from CDMA to GSM in the mobile network options.

    I did. It is set to GSM with 3G & 2G. It still just says "call forwarding-conditional".
