    Does it have an operator logo?
    Maybe the site made a mistake and sent you a locked version?

    Yes. Its a locked phone.
    Go to ebay and search for unlock codes for your device.
    You should get it for $0.99.
    Best of luck.

    Definitely sounds like the phone is locked. There are several options to get it unlocked, though.

    OP here is a link for an ebay store which unlocks phones for $0.99.
    Used his services twice and worked perfectly both times.

    hello i have a Bold 9900 running on 5.0
    my phone is bought in the uk. vodafone uk carrier. it has been unlocked 6 months now.
    yesterday it was performing very slow so i tried to reboot it using QuickPull. it got an error so i just did
    the usual battery pull. after doing such, my bb just got "Sim Not Allowed:3"
    I can send/receive texts and calls but I cant use my wifi.
    is there a way to fix it? I hope you could reply. thank you
