    If you look carefully on the little metal thing it will say ''lock'' and ''unlock'' move it into the unlock position, lift it upward gently, then place the SIM card into the device with the gold contacts facing the metal contacts on the phone, then lower the metal slider, then push it into the ''locked'' position, voila..sim inserted, turn on device and enjoy!! welcome to crackberry!!

    It definitely sounds like you have a locked BB, you need to contact the operator where the device was purchased from in order to get it unlocked.

    I don't know where MUSCAT is but is the phone unlocked?
    Is the SIM card compatible with the BlackBerry device?
    Does the SIM card work in other phones?
    Does the BlackBerry work with other SIM cards?
    Have you contacted the phone carrier?
    What troubleshooting have YOU done?

    not sure my sim card from previous phone is compatible with my new curve 8310 because it doesn't fit snugly. how do i find out for sure? will it harm the phone to try it anyway?
